We've divided the City of Madison into 21 Sections.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison campus is located in Section 1, except for University Hospital and Clinics and the Schools of Nursing, Pharmacy, and Medicine and Public Health which are located in Section 9, directly west of Section 1.

All UW-Madison students (except Guest Students) are entitled to an ASM Student Bus Pass, distributed by Associated Students of Madison, the UW-Madison Student Government. The pass, issued each semester, is valid on all Madison Metro routes. Campus bus routes 80, 81, 82, and 85 are free to anyone at all times.

Campus parking permits are extremely limited. Priority is given to students who have accessibility needs and to commuting students from outside the city. Most city streets have restricted time limits on parking. Our rental listings indicate if parking is available. For additional parking information please see our parking FAQ.
