Pay by Phone

You can now pay for parking in most Bothell Campus parking areas with a few taps on your phone. When you’re ready to park, select your parking location and the amount of time you want to park.

You do not need to display a receipt on your vehicle or use a pay station if you pay for parking with the PayByPhone app. Parking permissions are validated with your vehicle’s plate. All parking rates and policies remain the same, regardless of how you pay for parking. Refunds for daily and hourly parking are not available.

Get Started

To register, download the PayByPhone app and enter your license plate and payment information. You can also use an existing account (for example, if you’ve already been using the app to pay for on street parking).

Where to Park

You may park in any general parking space in the valid area you select on the app. The app may be used to pay for parking in a disability parking space. Of course, a valid disability parking placard (UW or state-issued) must be displayed at all times when parked in a disability parking space.

Please plan to get to campus well ahead of your class start time to allow time to find a space. Be sure to not park in faculty/staff only sections, carpool, or disability accessible spaces unless your permit authorizes you to do so. Parking rules are enforced 24/7.

Parking Citations

The Washington Administrative Code 478-117 and 132Z-116 authorizes Bothell Campus Commuter Services to enforce all parking and traffic regulations on campus.

Pay or Appeal Your Citation

Parking citations can be paid or appealed prior to the deadline written on the violation ticket. Submit an appeal or make payment online via the Bothell Campus Parking Portal.

If you are dissatisfied with the adjudication of your appeal, you have 21 days to request a review of your written decision. Submit a written statement via email to with the subject "Request Review of Appeal".

Failure to Pay Fines

Failure to pay fines may result in vehicle immobilization, vehicle impoundment, and/or suspension of parking privileges on campus. If an extended period of time passes where a citation has not yet been paid, then a late fee will be assessed and it is subject to be sent to a collections agency. Any further actions regarding the citation after it has been sent to collections must be through the collections agency. For more information, visit Univeristy of Washington Bothell's Commuter Services Citation webpage.

Suspension of Parking Privileges

The Washington Administrative Code 478-117-310 and 132Z-116-310 authorizes Commuter Services to deny parking privileges on UW Bothell / Cascadia College property for violators who do not pay their citations within the specified timeframe.

Parking a vehicle on campus while parking privileges are suspended will result in vehicle immobilization (boot/wheel lock) and/or vehicle impoundment, even if parked with an otherwise valid permit or payment. Immobilization or impoundment does not remove the obligation for payment of fines associated with parking violations.

Vehicle Immobilization / Wheel Lock

Any vehicle with an accumulation of four or more unpaid parking citations is subject to the placement of a vehicle boot. To have boot removed, first settle outstanding citations, then contact Campus Safety at 425-352-5359.

Carpool Program

Cascadia students, faculty and staff are eligible to participate. Carpool priority parking is available at the North and South parking garages. Carpool groups must be traveling to campus a minimum 2 days a week together, and must have matching schedules of 2.5 hours to each other. The carpool permit is only valid for one vehicle parked on campus at a time. If a secondary vehicle from the group must park on the same day, that vehicle will need to make payment for parking through the pay station or pay-by-phone service.

Electrical Vehicle Charging Stations

Electric car charging stations are available in the North and South garages. The North garage stations are on street level. South garage stations are on parking level three. Vehicles must have a valid permit. Quarterly and annual parking permits are only available online. Hourly and daily permits should be purchased at pay stations near parking lot entrances/exits or by using the PayByPhone app.
