Start of Fall Semester


Fall semester parking permits will be available for purchase on Thursday, August 1. For your convenience, we highly encourage you to order online. Not sure which permit to buy?  Find permit option information below.  Please ensure mailing addresses are up to date to avoid delivery delays.

You will receive an email confirmation with a link to print a temporary permit right away. Your hangtag should arrive via USPS within 7-10 business days. 

Purdue Indianapolis students may purchase a parking permit but must use their IU login to do so. Please check our Purdue Student FAQ page for more information. 


Permit Rates and Student Refunds



Pricing for parking permits is available on our rates page.  

Additionally, you will be able to return permits in the first five days of any month for a prorated refund. 

Refund Policy



Living Off Campus?



Students who live off campus usually buy an "ST" permit, which allows access to student lots and garages on the main campus. 




Students who wish to save money may purchase an "NCS" permit, which is valid in our North Campus lots, located on Indiana Avenue north of 10th Street, a short shuttle ride from the main campus.  

Finding parking at IU Indianapolis

ST permits are valid in six different garages so it is important to know your options.

The Barnhill Garage usually fills first and the Gateway Garage often has space available all day long. Keep that in mind when you're looking for parking! 


No matter where you live, you may also purchase an "NCS" permit to save money. The "NCS" permit is valid in our North Campus Lots, located on Indiana Avenue north of 10th Street, a short shuttle ride from the main campus. 

If you do not see one of these options listed, you still may purchase an NCS permit and add your name to the appropriate waitlist. We will contact you when the waitlist is released.

Where Can I Park?

Park Once, Shuttle All Day


The JAGLINE is a great way to get around campus!

We offer five different routes to get you anywhere you need to go and our Purple Line connects to IndyGo's Red Line. All routes can be tracked through the JAGLINE app. 

All buses are ADA accessible and have bike racks.
