Parking and Parking Permits


Student Parking

A valid student parking permit is required for all vehicles parked at the Truax or Commercial Avenue campuses. All vehicles must display a valid student permit at all times and park in designated areas only. Designated parking areas for students are in marked stalls only. Parking along curbs or on the grass is NOT allowed anywhere on Madison College campuses. The Madison College Truax campus offers additional parking in our “overflow” lots across Anderson Street, adjacent to the Lussier Athletic Park, and off of Straubel Street.  Vehicles found in violation of the current college parking policy are subject to a parking citation and/or towing at the owner’s expense without warning.

Parking Permits

Beginning in the Fall 2014 Semester, Public Safety will be issuing student parking permits for the entire academic year rather than by individual semester. This streamlined process makes it more convenient for our students and more efficient for Public Safety. Each student permit will now be valid from the beginning of the Fall Semester until August 31st of the following year. The parking permit cost for students is included in the commuter services fee. Students will no longer be required to sign up for a parking permit online. This feature is being removed the Student Center and the student will be redirected to the Madison College Parking Information page that will further explain the changes.

Parking permits may be picked up at the Public Safety Services administrative office (Truax room B1240). Please contact the Public Safety Services department if you have any questions.

Please review the most up to date parking map.

At Truax, parking meters, for 1 hour, are provided off Anderson Street and Wright Street. Gated visitor parking is located in the large lot West of Wright Street. For parking concerns or questions, please call (608) 246-6031.

State Disabled Parking for Students, Staff and Visitors
