Guest Parking Information

All guests and visitors to WIU-Quad Cities may park in designated guest parking spots for up to 30 minutes.

If you intend to be on campus for longer than 30 minutes, please visit one of the reception desks located in Riverfront Hall or Quad Cities Complex 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.

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.

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 Student Services desk prior to purchasing a new hangtag at the full current fee.

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.
