Parking at the IMU

The IMU has adjacent metered parking on the south of the building near Hubbard Park, as well as some short-term loading spots along the east side of the building. The closest ramps are the IMU Parking Ramp and the North Campus Ramp. The University of Iowa Parking & Transportation office maintains parking facilities on campus. 

Limited parking through 10/1/17

The south IMU parking lot, next to Hubbard Park, is currently closed due to needed roof repairs. We understand that parking is very limited and we apologize for the inconvenience during this project.
Iowa House Hotel guests will still be able to use both entrances on the south end of the IMU, and the entire sidewalk along the south side of the IMU throughout the project. Guests may want to use the temporary dedicated Iowa House Hotel loading zone, in front of IMU on Madison Street, outside of Hubbard Commons.

Please visit for more specific Hotel parking instructions.

We hope to re-open the parking lot by 10/1, but construction may need to continue until 10/31. We do anticipate the number of spaces available in the parking lot to improve towards the end of this project.
