Paying and Appealing Parking Citations

Parking Citation Appeals

If you feel that your parking citation was issued contrary to the University of Iowa Parking Regulations or was simply issued in error, you may appeal your parking citation online at the above link. Please keep in mind that parking citations will not show in the system until the next business day. If you need help completing the online appeal please visit a Parking and Transportation Department office at the West Campus Transportation Center or the IMU Parking Ramp.

Appeals must be submitted within ten days of the issuance of the notice or the sanction will be placed on the registered owner, or parking permit holders, University bill. Such appeals must be state succinctly, but fully, the grounds on which the appeal is based. Appeals should be filed by completing the online process at parking.uiowa.edu. A case may be dismissed, upheld, upheld with sanction suspended, or modified.
