Any student athlete that registers their vehicle with compliance through the online form FrontRush may purchase a student athlete permit. Please note if you are living in a residence hall you do not qualify for a student athlete permit.
Permits are sold on a first come, first serve basis and go on sale August 1st. Rec Center – Lot 11 permits are available for AM, PM, and all day. You can only have one parking permit.
The athletic department covers half the cost of the permit. As the semester progresses the cost decreases since we prorate by half month. The permit is valid starting every year on August 16 through May 15 of the following year and automatically bills for the Spring Semester on January 1st if it is not cancelled beforehand.

AM Permit (valid from 7:30am-1:00pm) - $171/semester ($85.50/semester athlete cost)
PM Permit (valid from 11:00am-4:30pm) - $171/semester ($85.50/semester athlete cost)
All Day (valid from 7:30am-4:30pm) - $261/semester ($130.50/semester athlete cost)
How to order your permit
You will need to complete the form on FrontRush before stopping into our office to purchase the permit. Once you have that complete, please stop into the West Campus Transportation Center with your University ID and license plate number. Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30am-5:00pm.
Starting in summer 2022, there will be no physical permit. Your license plate will be your permit. Make sure you bring this with you as this needs to be accurate or you will be ticketed.
Displaying your permit
Be sure your license plate is clearly visible. Permit holders are responsible for the accuracy of their vehicle information in their account. Vehicle information can be updated in the online Parking Portal.
How to cancel your permit
To cancel a student athlete permit you will need to return the physical pass to the Parking Office. You can either drop it off at the West Campus Transportation Center or mail it back to 840 Evashevski Drive, Iowa City, IA 52242. If cancelled before the end of the semester you will receive a prorated refund.
You will be charged for the permit until it is cancelled or expires. If you fail to cancel your permit you are responsible for the time the permit was active. Your refund will be based on the date the permit is returned to our office.
