Patient Parking Rate Form for Hospital Parking Ramps

Are you a University of Iowa employee visiting the UI Hospitals and Clinics as a patient or guest?

If yes, you may recall that Hospital Parking Ramps 1, 2, and 4 are reserved for patients and visitors Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. However, the technology used to monitor patient parking facilities is unable to verify in real-time if employees have an appointment to assure your privacy.

Sometimes employees who are using the facilities as a patient or visitor may receive a citation for violating this parking policy. For the inconvenience we apologize, but we offer quick and easy options to avoid receiving or to cancel a parking citation. 


Avoid a Parking Ramp Citation

An Patient Parking Rate Pass can be printed from MyChart. Simply display the pass on the dashboard of your vehicle on the date of your appointment and a parking ramp citation will not be issued to the vehicle.

  1. Log in to your University of Iowa Health Care MyChart account:
    Don't have a MyChart account? Sign-up at 
  2. Hover over the Visits tab
  3. Select Appointments, Visits, Admissions
  4. Click on the link at the top of the page "Click here to view and print your Parking Pass for Patients and Visitors"
    Parking passes are generated for currently admitted patients or for an appointment occurring in the next seven days. 
  5. Print the form
  6. Place it on the driver's side of your vehicle's dashboard during your visit


Forgot to print a Patient Parking Rate Pass?

If you receive a parking ramp citation, don't worry. A green cancellation form is provided with any parking citation issued for "employee in patient ramp". Simply complete this form legibly and hand to the cashier when exiting.
