  • Parking/Traffic Changes that Impact the IMA

    September 27, 2015

    University of Washington

    Here are all of the events happening this week which will require the use of the E1 parking lot and the IMA parking lot:

    Event Name Event Date Event Location Lot Closure Start Time Lot Closure End Time
    UW Volleyball Wed Oct 7 at 7:30 PM AA Arena at Hec Ed 2:30 Hours before Event Start 1:00 Hours after Event Start
    UW Volleyball Fri Oct 9 at 7:00 PM AA Arena at Hec Ed 2:30 Hours before Event Start 1:00 Hours after Event Start

    If the IMA Lot is full/closed IMA Customers may use the following parking options:

    • E-8 Pay by Space stalls behind the IMA ($3 per hour)
    • E-12 Pay & Display machine ($3 per hour)
    • E-1 ($6 with Husky Card or $10 with cash
    • Any main campus parking lot ($3 per hour before 5 PM, $5 all day after 5 PM.
    • Regardless of the event, IMA customers with disabilities or special needs are still welcome to park in the IMA/Graves (E-98) lot and pay at the machine as they normally would.
    • After 5:00 PM on Monday - Friday parking is $5 on main campus and we recommend that IMA customers purchase parking from a gatehouse and park in the Padelford Parking Garage (lots N-18 - N-21).
    • Signage will be posted every Monday at every entrance to the E1 lot detailing all of the events occurring that week.
    • Signage will be posted at the IMA Lot several days before the event occurs warning customers of the upcoming closure.
    • Vehicles which have not vacated the IMA lot by the posted times will receive a parking citation and/or be towed and impounded at the owners expense.


    IMA Parking Changes

    Over the summer the E1 parking lot has changed and will now be split between E1 (pay per use) and E18 (discount permit) parking.

    Paying by Credit Card in E1

    E1 parkers will be charged $6 upon exit for each day parked. One day constitutes 24 hours from the time of entry. Cash & Husky Card Account will no longer be accepted. We hope to make Husky Card Account payment available at a future date. Credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover), UW pre-issued access cards (UW department and Seattle Children's users), Pay per use (pre-arranged parking plan) will be accepted. You will be required to swipe your card upon both entrance and exit. This is a change from current procedure, where payment or access cards are required only to enter the lot. Please note that the same card must be used for entry and exit, or the gate arm will not lift to allow exit. Carpool parking will cost $6 per day per vehicle. The new infrastructure does not allow the splitting of the parking fee at the time of purchase at the gate, but your carpool membership can decide how to continue to split the cost. Carpooling continues to save you money by sharing the cost of parking, gas and vehicle maintenance.

    MAP of changes available here:

    Parking can be a bit challenging at the IMA during home sporting events. Check back for game dates/times and parking details. Obey all posted signs as Parking Services will tow unauthorized vehicles.
