for maps & directions

You have several options for parking near
the library:

1. Purchase a Night & Weekend parking permit. This will give you access (from 4:30 pm to 8:30
am weekdays and all weekend long) to the Newton Road Ramp and
any other UI cashiered parking facility without paying an hourly
charge. See Parking & Transportation’s Student Parking and Bus Pass Information

2. Park free in lot 40 (by the Dental School)
from 4:30 pm to 5:30 am weekdays and all weekend long. Note: avoid lot 40
during most athletic events and all lots during home football games.

3. Obtain a night permit decal for your car.
It’s free and will enable you to pay student hourly rates at select
cashiered facilities (including the Newton Road Ramp) from 4:30
pm to 8:30 am weekdays and all weekend long. Be aware that entering
before 4:30 pm or leaving after 8:30 am invalidates the rate reduction. See Parking & Transportation’s Student Parking and Bus Pass Information

4. Use the metered parking located behind Hardin
Library
. The meters allow up to 2 hours of parking.

5.  Park your motorcycle or moped at the Newton Road Ramp.  Purchase an annual permit from Parking.
