Visitor Parking

Parking on the Indiana University campus during our business hours requires an IU permit for posted lots or parking in a garage or pay lot. The parking garages closest to Morrison Hall are as follows:

Atwater Garage – any space not otherwise posted is available for visitor parking
Jordan Avenue Garage – the upper level is available for visitor parking
Henderson Garage – any space not otherwise posted is available for visitor parking

There are also two pay lots near the Indiana Memorial Union which provide easy access to Morrison Hall.

Parking for Disabled Visitors

Visitors with a Disabled license plate, State Disabled placard/hang tag, or an Indiana Disabled American Veteran plate may either:

  • Obtain a Visitor-disabled permit from Parking Operations;
  • Use a Disabled-only meter; or
  • Use a campus parking garage

Disabled-only meters allow the visitor to park without obtaining an IU permit. Drivers with the above-listed documentation on their vehicle may simply feed the Disabled-only meter for up to four hours; however, drivers with an IU disabled permit may use these spaces for free so availability can be limited. The meters must be paid to avoid a citation during hours of enforcement (7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday).

Disabled zone (HC) spaces require the above-listed documentation on the vehicle AND an IU disabled permit which can be purchased at Parking Operations located in the Henderson Garage on Fess Ave. between Atwater Ave. and 3rd St.

Disabled parking near Morrison Hall – indicated as blue dots on the map below

  • Morrison Hall (right behind our building but only accessible by passing through the guard gate on 7th Street near the IMU and winding around Ballantine Hall) – 2 HC zone
  • Goodbody Hall (west side of Goodbody off of 3rd Street) – 3 HC zone
  • President’s Lot (north of the School of Music en route to Bryan House, accessible off of Jordan Ave.) – 2 disabled meters & 7 HC zone
  • Memorial Hall (circle drive off of 3rd Street) – 1 disabled meter & 12 HC zone
  • Music Circle & Drives (off of 3rd Street) – 1 disabled meter & 8 HC zone

The only wheelchair accessible entrance to our building is from the loading dock which is on the north side of Morrison Hall. Anyone in a wheelchair would likely want to park in the Morrison Hall or President’s lot spaces as they provide the most direct access to that entrance. The other lots can work with wheelchairs but would require navigating around to the back of the building. Those able to manage a few stairs may wish to focus on the other locations.
