Parking Permits

It is your responsibility to be aware of the parking/traffic regulations of Indiana University Kokomo. They are provided for your convenience and safety. Please read carefully.

General Regulations

Campus parking facilities are patrolled from Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m.–10:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m.; and Sundays, 12 noon – 9 p.m. Regulations are subject to amendment.

  • All vehicles must properly display a valid parking permit and park in designated parking areas of the IU Kokomo campus.  Vehicles not displaying a valid parking permit will receive a citation and the vehicle owner will be held responsible for all fines incurred.

  • The speed limit for motor vehicles on university property is 15 miles per hour.

  • A legal parking space is between two (2) white, yellow, or green lines. You must have a white, yellow, or green line on each side of your vehicle. Lack of space adjacent to any building is not considered a valid reason for violation of regulations.

  • Legal parking of motor vehicles on university property is confined to areas designated for that purpose. Parking is prohibited on the oval drive, driveways, lawns, in crosswalks, fire lanes, loading and service vehicle docks, entrances to buildings, or any other areas where parked vehicles could interfere with the use of the university facilities by others. Violators are subject to citation and towing charges.

  • For information concerning parking motorcycles, motorbikes, and motor scooters, contact Parking Services, in the Kelley Student Center KC106.

  • The person in whose name a parking permit is issued is responsible for all violations by all vehicles displaying that parking permit. A citation is not excused because another person was using the permit. Students may not give a permit to another student.  

  • Any vehicle in violation of parking regulations, or any that appears to be abandoned may be towed at the owner’s expense.

  • Enrolled students, faculty, and staff are not permitted to park in spaces designated as Visitor Parking.  

  • IU Kokomo honors valid faculty/staff and student parking permits/decals, in comparable parking areas, issued by all Indiana University campuses as well as the other state universities of Indiana. 

  • Bicycles must be parked in bicycle racks. No parking permit is required. Do not chain or lock bicycles to undesignated university property or in areas prohibited by fire codes (such as doorways, fire exits, fire plugs).

  • Any accident involving a motor vehicle on IU Kokomo property must be reported to the University Police, Kelley Student Center, Room 106, (765) 455-9363 or ext. 9363 from any campus/house phone. This office is open Monday–Friday, 6 a.m.–10:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.; and Sundays, 12 noon–9 p.m.  Outside the above hours, report accidents to the Kokomo Police Department, (765) 459-5101.

Any vehicle in violation of university parking regulations, or any that are apparently abandoned, may be towed by the contract wrecker company and stored at the owner’s expense. It will be the owner’s responsibility to pay for the tow at the contract wrecker company lot. All tickets must be paid prior to the vehicle being released from the wrecker company. If a tow truck is called to the campus and the owner of the vehicle appears and pays all tickets before the car is towed away, the vehicle will be released to the owner upon payment of a dry run charge to the driver of the tow truck.
