No matter where you park on campus, your license plate serves as your proof of payment.
Make sure you enter your license plate information accurately in the Pay By Phone app (hourly parking) and in the Parking Portal (permit parking)
A properly-mounted license plate must be visible at all times. If your vehicle's front plate is absent or placed on the dashboard, do not back-in to your parking stall.
Parking at UW Tacoma
UW Tacoma is an urban campus and parking can be a challenge at times. There are a number of paid parking options on and around campus, as well as some free parking options a short walk or light rail ride away.
Free parking options
Limited free street parking is available on and to the south of S 21st Street and on and to the north of Market Street. (Street parking is managed by the City of Tacoma - verify prices and time limits before parking!)
