Parking During Snow Events

Where do I park during a snow storm?

  • Drivers are asked not to park in their usual parking lots unless they have been cleared. Instead, they should park in one of these designated lots (all valid ISU parking permits will be honored):
    -- Southeast corner of Iowa State Center (lots C3, C4, C5, D3, D4, and D5)
    -- North of Molecular Biology (lots 29 and 30)
    -- North of General Services Building (lot 41)

  • Those parking at the Iowa State Center can ride the CyRide shuttles to campus. The buses (the Orange route) run at 5- to 10-minute intervals at no charge.

  • During poor weather, the campus community is encouraged to use the CyRide bus system, which will add buses to its routes. For more CyRide information, call (515) 292-1100.

Who removes snow and ice on campus?

  • Facilities Planning and Management's Campus Services workgroup provides snow and ice removal, as conditions warrant, for 23 miles of institutional roads, 34 miles of sidewalks and bike paths, and 162 acres of parking lots. Campus Services also removes snow at the Iowa State Center for event parking. Details on snow removal services.
