Pro tip: Link to campus parking lots

Embed Campus Map: Parking Lots overlaid

Did you know you can point visitors directly to any campus parking lot from the Campus Map? Showing visitors where to park on the map is similar to showing them where campus buildings or landmarks are located, but there’s one extra (and often overlooked) step required to find the “share link.”

Did you know that you can embed a smaller version of the Campus Map right into your UW Theme WordPress site? This map is interactive and will even let users find directions from any point on campus (or a specified address) straight to your building or parking lot.

“Pagelet” is a custom widget created by the Marketing Web Team for content that needs to be displayed in multiple pages or in the right-hand menu of some (but not all) of your pages. They are also useful for when you have reoccurring but time-sensitive information.
