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

ADA Accessible Parking for ATM 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 (VTD) from Parking Operations;
  • Use an ADA parking meter; or
  • Use a campus parking garage

ADA parking meters allow the visitor to park without obtaining an IU permit. Drivers with the above-listed documentation on their vehicle may simply feed the ADA parking meter for up to four hours; however, drivers with an IU VTD 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).

ADA parking 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.
