Where to go/parking
Where should I park?

Much of the parking at Indiana University is by permit only. If you are parked illegally you will be ticketed and towed. Indiana University Parking Operations and the City of Bloomington will be monitoring the all permit lots on a continuous basis. It is a safety hazard and illegal under University Policy. Please use one of the many surrounding parking lots, or purchase a parking permit. We appreciate your compliance with this rule.
