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 Truax campus offers additional parking in overflow lots located adjacent to the Lussier Athletic Park on Anderson St. and off Straubel St.

Carpool parking is available in the main Truax student parking lot with a valid carpool parking permit. To be eligible for one of these permits, students must have a minimum of three occupants in the vehicle. 

Vehicles parked illegally or improperly using the carpool parking area are subject to a parking citation and/or towing at the owner’s expense without warning.  

Parking permits are included in tuition fees for degree-credit students and are free for non-credit students. Parking permits may be obtained at the Public Safety Office in Room B1240 of the main Truax building and are valid for one academic year -- always expiring in August. Please bring your student OneCard or other government-issued photo I.D. 

Visitor Parking

At Truax, one-hour parking meters are provided off Anderson St. and Wright St. These metered stalls are enforced regularly, and unpaid or expired meters are subject to citation and towing.

A gated visitor parking area is located in the large lot west of Wright Street, as well as adjacent to the Health Education Building. Visitors are welcome to park there for free.

Students that park in areas designated for visitors without proper authorization are subject to ticketing and/or towing at their expense.

Accessible Parking

Accessible parking is clearly marked and available in all Madison College campus lots. Parking along curbs or on the grass is not allowed anywhere on Madison College campuses. 

Students and staff do not need to register to park in stalls for vehicles for individuals with disabilities if they display a valid disabled identification card or license plate. 

At the Truax and Commercial Avenue campuses, vehicles parked in officially marked State of Wisconsin disabled motorist stalls must display the proper disabled license plate and/or permit. Violators will be ticketed and/or towed by the Madison Police Department without notice; disabled parking is governed by state and federal laws only, and Madison College's Public Safety Services has no involvement with the enforcement of these laws.
