University Hospitals and Clinics Parking
Parking for University Hospitals and Clinics is provided in Hospital Ramp 1, Hospital Ramp 2, Hospital Ramp 3, Hospital Ramp 4 and the Family Care Center Lot (University Hospitals and Clinics Parking Map). Each of these is a cashiered facility located near UIHC. Please take a cashier’s ticket from the ticket dispenser upon entering a facility.
The Family Care Center Lot is restricted to patients visiting the UIHC Family Medical Center only and requires their special pass in order to exit. We request that visitors, vendors and other patients please not park there. A special $20 rate applies to those who park without the Family Medical Center pass.
Free parking is available for UIHC patients and visitors in the University’s Hawkeye Commuter Lot on the west campus and linked to the Hospital by free CAMBUS transit service. A pass is required to park there. For information on how to use this service call the UIHC Main information desk at (319) 356-2456.
Hours of operation
Hospital Ramps 1, 2, 3 and 4 are open and cashiered twenty-four hours a day seven days a week. The Family Care Center Lot is open and cashiered from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday thru Friday only.
Any of these facilities may be occasionally closed for maintenance, special events and emergencies.
Patient Rate: Patients and their visitors should obtain a Patient Parking Voucher before leaving the Hospital. When exiting the parking ramp, present the voucher and the parking entry ticket to the parking cashier. This will limit hourly charges and the daily maximum to the lower Patient Rate.
Graduated Rate: Individuals entering the ramps between 5:00 A.M. and 9:00 A.M. Monday thru Friday who stay longer than three hours and do not present a patient validation to the parking cashier will be charged the graduated rate.
Standard Rate: Individuals entering at any time other than 5:00 A.M. and 9:00 A.M. Monday thru Friday and do not present a patient validation to the parking cashier will be charged the standard rate.
The cost of parking for the first three hours for both the graduated and standard rates is identical. After three hours the graduated rate is higher. Both rates have the same daily maximum.
The charge for a lost cashier’s ticket is equal to the daily maximum charge.
Employees: University employees are prohibited from parking in Hospital Ramps 1, 2, 4 and the Family Care Center during weekday hours (8:30 am thru 4:30 pm). If you are parking as a patient or visitor during those hours, please display the Patient Parking Voucher on your dashboard. Learn more by clicking here.
Multi-Day Patient and Visitor passes: Patients and visitors making extended visits may purchase 3-day and 7-day ramp passes for use in Hospital Ramps 1, 2, 3, and 4. The 3-day pass provides three (3) consecutive days of reduced rate parking at $27 per pass. The 7-day pass provides seven (7) consecutive days of reduced rate parking at $58 per pass. Passes may be purchased at the Guest Services office in UIHC or at the Parking and Transportation offices in the West Campus Transportation Center.
