New for the 2020 season! Wisconsin Athletics is proud to partner with UW Health on football parking at the 1 South Park and 20 South Park properties. Please see UW Health Parking Lots under Additional Parking Information for further details.
For 2020, the Athletic Department will continue to review and allocate season parking requests based on lot availability, annual giving level and priority points within each giving level via Badger Select. The Badger Select process allows for the Athletic Department to annually evaluate parking inventory while accommodating donors with a unique appointment time to choose parking based on their individual needs.
Patrons wishing to participate in Badger Select and order season parking must be a current football season ticket holder and active donor to Wisconsin Athletics. The minimum contribution to be eligible for football parking is $250. To be considered an active donor, patrons must submit their annual contribution by May 11th. Active donors (with football season tickets) will be notified as to their annual parking selection date and time after June 10th. The online annual football parking selection process will begin June 23rd and run through July 8th from 8:30am to 4:30pm, Monday – Friday.
Football season parking permits for all lots sold out the past three years. The same type of demand for season parking permits is expected for subsequent seasons. All parking is subject to availability.

Qualifying Donations for the opportunity to order football season parking permits are as follows:
Donors ordering multiple football parking permits must qualify for each permit based on their annual giving level [Example: Ordering two zone A football parking permits would require a minimum annual giving level of $10,000 ($5,000 per permit)]. Ambassador’s Circle, Hall of Fame, MVP, Champion’s, and All–American Club level donors qualify for every parking lot available, from Zone A to Zone D. Director’s Club level donors qualify for only Zone B, Zone C, and Zone D parking lots. Coach’s Club level donors qualify for Zone C and Zone D parking lots. Captain’s and Red & White Club level donors qualify for only Zone D parking lots. Additionally, season ticket holders/active donors will be limited to purchase up to three (3) season parking permits, per account, based on annual giving level qualification, donor requests, and lot availability. Eligibility does not guarantee availability.
Parking lot availability fluctuates on an annual basis. It is not possible to forecast the annual contribution level and priority points necessary to receive a season permit in a specific parking lot and/or zone. For reference to donors interested in securing football season parking permits, below is a summary of the minimum annual giving levels and priority points for each respective parking lot from donors that purchased a 2019 football season parking permit. 2020 results will be based on lot availability, donor requests, annual giving levels, and Badger Select priority points.
Additional Parking Information
For our patrons with accessibility needs, the Athletic Department will sell a limited number of permits in Lot 17 on a first come, first served, single game basis. Permits will go on sale through the Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office at 1(800) 462–2343 or (608) 262–1440 the Monday before each home game starting at 8:30am. Phone sales only. Should a holiday fall on the Monday preceding a home game, permit sales will take place on the first open day of business thereafter. Permits will cost $20. Limit of one per account. Permits will not be mailed. Instead, permits will be left with the CSC staff members at Lot 17 for pick up the day of the game. Patrons will need to show both their picture I.D. and their state issued handicapped placard or handicap license plate in order to claim the permit. No permits will be released to anyone other than the account holder of record.
Other options for patrons with accessibility needs include the Lot 60 shuttle. Parking in Lot 60 will cost $5 per automobile and $6 per person to ride the shuttle round–trip (subject to availability). The Lot 60 shuttle will drop patrons off at the corner of Breese Terrace and University Avenue where they can ride in a golf cart operated by our Guest Services staff to the stadium entrance located closest to their seats.
There are also three drop–off points around Camp Randall Stadium for patrons to disembark from their own vehicles. These include: Monroe Street outside of Gate 1 on the southeast corner of Camp Randall Stadium, the corner of Regent Street and Breese Terrace and at the corner of Breese Terrace and University Avenue across from the First Congregational Church.
Wheelchair assistance is also available from our Guest Services staff. Prior to game–day please call (608) 263–7894. On game day call (608) 265–8676.
Bus and Motor Home Parking
Parking for buses, motor homes, and other “over–sized” vehicles is prohibited in all lots except for Lot 64 ($50 – near the UW Hospital on Walnut St). Permits may be purchased in advance through the Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office by calling 1.800.462.2343 or 608.262.1440. Advanced permit sales conclude no later than one week prior to each home game. Should any permits be available for sale day of the game, patrons will need to purchase the permit from the lot attendant. Overnight parking of all “over–sized” vehicles is prohibited on the UW Campus.
Lot 40 will continue to be under construction during the 2020 football season, due to the construction on Babcock Hall. The lot will be available for season purchase, but will continue to be split into lot 40 Babcock and lot 40 Stock Pavilion. The 2020 football season will mark the third season that the lot will be at a reduced capacity from previous seasons. The anticipated completion date of the project and the capacity of the parking lot when the project is complete is unknown at this time.
Lot 62 will continue to be under construction during the 2020 football season, due to the School of Veterinary Medicine addition, the new Meat Science and Animal Biologics Discovery Building and the construction of the Linden Drive Parking Garage. The lot will be available for season purchase, but the lot will continue to be at a reduced capacity from previous seasons. The 2020 football season will mark the second season that the lot will be at a reduced capacity from previous seasons. The anticipated completion date of this project is unknown at this time.
Single Game Parking
Single game parking is available for purchase from lots with availability on a first come, first served basis on the day of the game only. Patrons will pay the lot attendant as they enter the lot. These lots will be determined once the season begins. Traditionally, they have included Lot 46 ($15 – Lake & Johnson Street) and Lot 60 ($5 – near the UW Hospital on Walnut).
Badger Bus provides two shuttle routes to and from Camp Randall Stadium on game day. Shuttles are available for $6 per person round–trip or $3 one–way and run approximately every 15 minutes starting two hours prior to kick–off and up to one hour after the conclusion of the game. Purchase this discounted rate season pass during the first or second home game at your Bucky Shuttle Pick–Up Location. Cash/check payments only. Patrons may park in Lot 60 or Lot 76 (near the UW Hospital on Walnut St.) for an additional $5 fee. Shuttle bus pickup for Lot 60/76 patrons is located at the bus stop on University Bay Drive, between Lot 60 and Lot 76, and drops off at the corner of Breese Terrace and University Avenue. For Lot 64 bus/motorhome patrons, the shuttle bus pickup is located at the metro bus stop on Observatory across from Lot 64. Patrons may also park in any of the four Capitol Square parking ramps (State Street, Capitol Square North, Government East, & Capitol Square South / normal City of Madison parking ramp fees apply). The shuttle picks up at each ramp and drops off on Monroe Street, near the southeast corner of Camp Randall Stadium (Gate 1).
UW Health Parking Lots
New for the 2020 season, Wisconsin Athletics is proud to partner with UW Health on football parking at the 1 South Park and 20 South Park properties. Patrons choosing to park in these lots will enjoy tailgating opportunities in surface stalls and easy access to parking before and after the game off of Regent Street and Park Street. Portable restrooms will be available.
Each of the two properties has a surface and ramp component. If you purchase ramp parking, you may not park in the surface stalls. Additionally, if you purchase parking at 1 South Park, you may not go and park in 20 South Park. In selecting season parking during Badger Select, patrons selecting to park at either UW Health 1 South Park Surface, UW Health 1 South Park Ramp, UW Health 20 South Park Surface or UW Health 20 South Park Ramp should be aware of which property they are choosing and pay close attention to the corresponding surface versus ramp designation.
Please note that Bus/RV’s are prohibited. Patrons looking to purchase Bus/RV parking in Lot 64 (606 Walnut Street) on a single game basis are encouraged to contact the Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office at (608) 262–1440.
Please note that specifically for the Friday, September 4th home football game versus Indiana, football event parking in the UW Health lots will begin at a designated time after 5PM, as the UW Health clinics will be open during regular business hours that day. More information will be provided closer to the start of the season.
