For 2023–24, 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 email to all men's basketball season ticket holders/active donors in August.
All patrons have an overall permit limit of three (3), but a maximum of two (2) 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||Parking Qualifying Gift Amount: Lot Name(s)|
|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) parking permits can come from 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 2022–23 men's basketball season parking. 2023–24 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||18,682||A|
|UHAUL||Hall of Fame||7,071||A|
|7||Red & White||1,742||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 2023–24 men’s basketball season 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 and is not a part of the annual Badger Select parking selection process. Accessible parking for men’s basketball is sold on a season basis in Lot 87 (701 W. Dayton St; Nicholas Recreation Center). New requests for accessible season parking in Lot 87 are accepted during the season ticket order period concluding July 30 and are evaluated prior to the annual Badger Select parking selection process. Accessible parking for men’s basketball in Lot 87 sold out for the 2022-23 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 2023-24 season. Attrition in Lot 87 has traditionally been extremely low.
