Eligibility: Student – both undergraduate and graduate/professional not living in university housing – may purchase this permit.

Nights and Weekends: Night and Weekend (NW) Privileges provide access to university cashiered facilities* via a parking access card at no extra charge between 4:30 p.m. and 8:30 a.m. Monday – Friday and all weekend. To use NW Privileges, you must use your parking access card to enter and exit the parking facility.

* Library Parking Lot (Lot 3) hours of Night Weekend use are 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. Monday through Friday and all weekend.

Using your permit: Present the parking access card to the face of the card reader, which resembles a bullseye. Hold access card steady and parallel to the reader. If parking facility sign indicates full, you will need to go to the next available facility.

The student, standard, or graduated rates apply for use outside of the NW Privilege hours and are charged through your U-Bill. Visit transportation.uiowa.edu and click on the link “View my Parking Access Card Transactions” to view your transactions.

The parking access card must be scanned even when the parking gates are up, including on university holidays. Failure to use your parking access card to either enter or exit will result in the daily maximum fee being charged.  

Never share, transfer, or pass-back a parking access card. Each incidence will result in a daily maximum charge. Repeated misuse will result in cancelation of privileges.
