Student parking near Hardin Library

You have several options for parking near the library:

  • 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. $17/month.
  • 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. Decal is free, parking is .75/hour with decal.
