WIU Quad Cities Campus Parking

Riverfront Parking Lot

Effective: August 1, 2016

This overview of Parking Regulations does not take the place of the complete parking regulations (www.wiu.edu/parking/regs.php). These rules and regulations are enforced the entire year, including breaks between sessions.

A parking permit is required to park in the WIU-QC parking lots. Purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee a place to park. The responsibility of finding a legal parking space rests upon the vehicle operator.

Parking Permits

WIU-Quad Cities campus buildings have parking lots for faculty, staff and students who purchase a hang tag. Student permits are $56 per year and Faculty/Staff permits are $110 per year. Permits are available for purchase by visiting the information desk in Quad Cities Complex 1416A, Building C. Your WIU Parking Permit is also valid at the WIU-Macomb Campus Q-Lot and at Black Hawk College's student parking areas.

Guest Parking Information

All guests and visitors to WIU-Quad Cities are required to obtain a guest parking permit to park on campus. Guests with permits may park in the 34th Street Lot or the University Drive West Lot. The University Drive East Lot is limited to WIU Faculty and Staff. Guest permits are available from the Security Office in Riverfront Hall 108.

Bike Racks

Bike Racks

WIU-Quad Cities buildings have bike racks available for students, faculty, and staff. The bike rack at Riverfront is located on the south side of the building. We recommend you secure your bicyle while on campus by using a bike lock.

Parking Regulations

Individuals who own, possess, or operate a vehicle on campus are responsible for complying with parking regulations; ignorance thereof is not a valid defense for failure to observe any of the regulations, nor does it absolve violators from any penalties.

PERMITS/HANGTAGS can be purchased at the WIU-QC campus by visiting the information desk in Quad Cities Complex 1416A, Building C.

  • Permits must be displayed at all times to the registered vehicle.
  • Permits may not be transferred, loaned, traded or sold from one person to another. Any license plate change must be reported to the WIU-Quad Cities campus.
  • Permits are valid at both the Quad Cities and Macomb campuses. Employees and students may purchase only one hangtag.

MOTORCYCLES must be registered and are permitted to park only within posted motorcycle areas. This is a 24-hour restriction. Motorcycle permits are $30 for the year.

STOLEN/LOST HANGTAG requires notifying the WIU Quad Cities campus prior to purchasing a new hangtag at the full current fee.

GUEST permits are available from the Security Office in Riverfront Hall 108.

HANDICAPPED SPACES are reserved for state authorized handicapped vehicles that display a state handicapped license plate or permit. Students and faculty/staff are required to obtain a current annual permit. Violators are subject to ticketing and having the vehicle towed at the owner’s expense.

APPEALS may be submitted within seven calendar days from the date of the ticket. Appeal forms are available at the WIU Quad Cities campus Security Office in Riverfront Hall 108. Appeal forms are also available online. If an appeal is denied, a second written appeal may be submitted within ten calendar days from the review date.

PARKING SPACES are identified by white lines. All other areas are considered no parking zones. The fact that other vehicles are parked improperly shall not constitute a valid reason for parking with any part of the vehicle on or over the line, in a “no parking” zone, on the grass, etc.
