The Iowa River flows north and south through our campus. For most admission visit destinations, you’ll want to park on the east side of campus. In general, the health care colleges, life-sciences departments, and athletics are located on the west side of campus.

Visitors Parking Guide

This handy map shows you where to find parking ramps on and near the east side of campus.

Avoid parking in...

  • Passenger loading areas—a guaranteed ticket!
  • Reserved lots—these are only for UI faculty and staff. Another guaranteed ticket!
  • Metered spots—unless you plan to feed the meters continuously throughout your stay. Otherwise, multiple guaranteed tickets.
