For 2022–23, the Athletic Department will continue to review and allocate season parking requests based on lot availability, annual giving level and priority points within each giving level via online selection software, called Badger Select. The Badger Select process allows for the Athletic Department to annually evaluate parking inventory while accommodating donors with a unique appointment time to choose parking based on their individual needs.
More details regarding the online parking selection process will be distributed by physical mail and email to all men's basketball season ticket holders/active donors in August.
All patrons have an overall permit limit of three, but a maximum of two of those three permits may come from zone A parking lots.
Qualifying donations for the opportunity to order men's basketball season parking permits are as follows:
|Zone A (2 permit limit)||$5,000+ or higher : Lot 91, Depot & UHaul|
|Zone B||$1,000+ or higher : Lots 29, 44, & Group Health Coop|
|Zone C||$50+ or higher : Lots 7, 46, 51, & UW Health|
Donors ordering multiple men's basketball parking permits must qualify for each permit based on their annual giving level (Example: Ordering the maximum of two (2) Zone A men's basketball parking permits would require a minimum annual giving level of $10,000 ($5,000 per permit)). Ambassador's Circle, Hall of Fame, MVP, Champion's, and All-American Club level donors qualify for every parking lot available, from Zone A to Zone C. Director's and Coach's Club level donors qualify for only Zone B and Zone C parking lots. Captain's, Red & White, and Walk–On Club level donors qualify for only Zone C parking lots. Season ticket holders/active donors will be limited to purchase up to three (3) season parking permits for men's basketball, per account, based on annual giving level qualification, donor requests, and lot availability. A maximum of two (2) can come from our Zone A parking lots.
Parking lot availability fluctuates on an annual basis. It is not possible to forecast the annual contribution level and priority points necessary to receive a season permit in a specific parking lot and/or zone. For reference to donors interested in securing men's basketball season parking permits, below is a summary of the minimum annual giving levels and priority points for each respective parking lot from donors that purchased 2021–22 men's basketball season parking. 2022–23 results will be based on lot availability, donor requests, annual giving levels, and Badger Select priority points.
|LOT||GIVING LEVEL||BADGER SELECT POINTS||ZONE|
|91||Hall of Fame||3,561||A|
|7||All qualifying donors had access to purchase||C|
|UW HEALTH||All qualifying donors had access to purchase||C|
|46||All qualifying donors had access to purchase||C|
The Alexander Lot, which is privately owned, will not be available for season parking for the 2022–23 and 2023–24 Men’s Basketball Seasons due to the construction of an apartment complex and parking ramp. Wisconsin Athletics was made aware of this in March of 2022.
Advanced sale of accessible parking for men's basketball is only available on a season basis. Accessible parking for men’s basketball is sold on a season basis in Lot 87 (701 W. Dayton St; Nicholas Recreation Center). Accessible parking for men’s basketball in Lot 87 sold out for the 2021-22 season. Therefore, there will need to be attrition in the lot in order for new season parking passes to be available for purchase for the 2022-23 season.

Patrons are asked to maintain a copy of their current accessible placard or accessible license plate, along with a copy of the accompanying accessible permit certificate of registration, with the Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office. If the copy of the accessible placard or accessible license plate that the Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office has on file is outdated, patrons are asked to please provide a current copy during the season ticket order period.
