Campus Parking and Buses
Many campus lots are free on the weekends. View the campus parking map and take note of the lots in green. Please note that event parking, including volleyball and hockey, can impact lot availability (specifically, the “green” lots 19 and 94). Please check posted signage at each lot before parking. See available lots and costs on the UW Men’s Hockey Parking Map.
Our Saturday shuttle includes a stop at lot 60. Learn more about the shuttle below or view a map here.
The interactive campus map shows public parking locations, as well as information on bus stops (and real-time schedule info), B-cycle kiosk locations, and more.
Additionally, the visitor parking availability page has a live count of parking available in campus gated lots.
Many Family Weekend activities are within a short walk of one another. The free campus buses—80 and 84 (daytime), and 80, 81, and 82 (nighttime)—circulate throughout campus each day, allowing you to hop on and off near different events. Look for the blue bus-stop signs around campus.
Please note: parking availability and access is subject to change. Please be aware of all signs and notices posted at parking locations and follow all displayed parking regulations.
Downtown Madison Lots
The City of Madison also has a number of lots near campus. View a map.
Saturday Afternoon Shuttle
Free shuttles will circulate around campus to different tours, receptions, and events on Saturday, October 19. The complimentary shuttles operate every 10-20 minutes from 8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. Look for the “Welcome Badger Family” A-Frame signs at each location on the shuttle route map.
Accessible shuttle vans will also circulate on Saturday and will arrive at each stop approximately every 20 minutes.
Accessible stalls are within many lots on campus. UW–Madison Transportation Services outlines DOT Accessible parking. Please note, by law, we cannot reserve accessible stalls as they are all on a first-come, first-served basis. With any lot, please obey the posted signage and notices.
