Accessible parking locations

There are two metered, accessible spots off the northeast corner of the Main Library that can be accessed right off South Madison Street. These spots require payment via an app, ParkMobile, which works on iOS and Android.

Stanley Museum of Art parking

There are 40 spots and 2 accessible spots now available under the new University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art just to the south of the Main Library. Entrance to the lot is at the northwest corner of the museum from the west.

Enforcement hours will be from 7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday–Friday. Maximum parking session is 2 hours and the rate is $1.20/hour. Two pay stations are available.

Lot 3

Faculty/Staff or student permit parking ONLY during business hours: Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m.– 4:30 p.m.

Paid parking is available outside of that timeframe for everyone.

Lot 3 is located to the west of the Main Library to the river and just south of the English Philosophy Building (EPB). It has motorcycle parking on the east side of the lot. Accessible, metered parking is available on the northwest corner (south of EPB) and located on the east side by the entrance to the pedestrian walkway under the rail tracks. The latter will only require a short walk to the north entrance of the Main Library.

Motorcycle parking

In addition to the spaces in Lot 3, there is a small, separate lot at the southwest corner of the Main Library for motorcycle parking 24/7 by permit only.
