Paying Fines

Payment for parking fines and citations must be made to the Parking Services office (located in the lower level of Blackhawk Commons) in person, online, by phone with a credit card or mailed to:

UW Oshkosh
Parking Services
800 Algoma Blvd
Oshkosh, WI  54901

If mailing, please be sure to include the ticket number, license plate number or actual paper ticket. Do not send cash through the mail. The Parking Service office will not be responsible for lost or stolen parking payments. There will be a $20 penalty assessed for non-sufficient fund checks. Failure to pay parking penalties will result in late fees. For tickets unpaid beyond 25 days, the past-due amount will be placed on the student’s account with an additional billing fee OR referred to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation for suspension of vehicle registration, based on the discretion of Parking Services. Also, non-payment of fines may cause a HOLD to be placed on all student records, including grades and transcripts. Repeat offenders are subject to doubling of fine values.

Parking Services enforcement officers, University police officers or residence hall directors are authorized to have a vehicle towed away, if it is found to violate any parking regulation. Repeat violations and/or nonpayment of parking tickets may result in towing and impounding the vehicle involved or removing it from state property at the owner’s expense. If your vehicle is towed, contact the Parking Services office to pay all outstanding tickets and then learn the location of the impounding agent. The driver or owner of a towed vehicle will be responsible for any damage incurred due to towing. Towed vehicles will be released when all outstanding tickets, towing charges and storage fees have been paid. Abandoned or impounded vehicles will be disposed after 60 days, unless the owner contacts the Parking Services office and makes provisions to release the vehicle and pay all outstanding fines and expenses.

All fees are subject to change

Tow-Away Policy

Parking Services enforcement officers, University police officers or residence hall directors are authorized to have a vehicle towed away if it is found to be in violation of any parking regulation.

Repeat violations and/or nonpayment of parking tickets may also result in impounding the vehicle involved or removing it from University owned or operated property at owner’s expense. During a snow emergency, vehicles parked in any employee, commuter or visitor lot after midnight will be ticketed and towed to allow snow removal. If your vehicle is towed, contact the Parking Services office to pay all outstanding tickets and then learn the location of the impounding agent. The driver or owner of a towed vehicle will be responsible for the outstanding balance on the account and the towing and storage expenses.

The University is not responsible for any damage incurred due to towing.

Towed vehicles will be released when all outstanding tickets, towing charges and storage fees have been paid. Abandoned or impounded vehicles will be disposed after 60 days, unless the owner contacts the Parking Services office and makes provisions to release the vehicle and pay all outstanding fines and expenses.
