Motorcycle Parking

 Faculty/Staff ONLY: Faculty/Staff can add their motorcycle to their Reserve, General Staff or Ames Lab parking permit. Must still park in designated motorcycle areas.


All motorcycles require a parking permit while on campus from Monday-Friday 7:00am - 5:30pm and all hours all days in residence hall lots. The permits are available on a yearly basis from July 1 - June 30 (permit not valid in the Memorial Union Ramp).  See permit price here.

Areas where motorcycles are allowed to park:

  • Designated motorcycle stalls- the stalls are smaller and there is a sign that reads “Motorcycle Parking.” 
  • Odd-shaped hatched areas- These areas are found on ends of parking rows or along some roads. Some of these areas do not allow motorcycle parking and will have a sign or painted on the ground “No Parking.” This includes motorcycles.


To view designated motorcycle parking areas, visit and look for the teal colored areas.
