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.

Guests attending events on campus may also park in spots identified by blue lines at the far west end of the University Drive West lot.

Bike Racks

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

MOTORCYCLES PERMITS -- Motorcycles and mopeds are permitted to park in designated motorcycle parking and meters. This is a 24-hour restriction. Individuals who register a primary vehicle and obtain a permit, may register one motorcycle to the permit at no cost. Individuals who use a motorcycle as a primary vehicle only, will be required to pay the current motorcycle registration fee to obtain a permit.

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. Appeals can be sent to qcstudentaffairs@wiu.edu . 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.

You have seven (7) days to appeal, void, or have a violation reduced. No adjustments will be made after seven days. Students with 10 or more tickets will be referred to Student Judicial Programs for appropriate action.
