WIAA Tournaments Will Impact Campus Parking

The upcoming WIAA state tournaments will impact parking and traffic around the Kohl Center as UW-Madison hosts more than 125,000 visitors for WIAA Individual Wrestling (February 22, 23 and 24) and WIAA Boys Basketball (March 15, 16 and 17). Parking permit holders in Lots 46, 91 and 94 will need to relocate from their assigned lots during the tournaments. Afternoon and night permit holders cannot park in Lots 29, 46, 83, 91 or 94. Permit holders in Lots 29 and 83 may park in their lots, but can use alternate lot options to avoid congestion. Affected permit holders may wish to use alternate transportation options, such as carpooling or taking the bus. Full details are available on the UW Transportation Services website,

Federal Tax Withholding Changes in Effect

Most UW–Madison employees will see a change in their federal income tax withholding on their paychecks as a result of the 2017 Federal Tax Reform bill, which was passed in December 2017. The change was implemented on the February 1, 2018, paycheck for University Staff, who are paid bi-weekly, and for Faculty, Academic Staff, and Limited Appointees, who are paid monthly. To see your federal withholding amount, log into MyUW and launch the Payroll Information module. You can review recent earnings statements to see how your federal withholding amount has changed.
