Traffic and Parking

Thousands use the Kirkwood campuses each day. For all of our protection, Campus Security will enforce traffic regulations. Students may park in any of the non-designated parking lots. Disability (handicap) spaces are reserved for those vehicles that display valid State of Iowa disability identification. Visitor spaces are for campus guests and should not be used by Kirkwood students, faculty or staff. Areas marked Blue Permit are reserved for faculty and staff vehicles that display valid blue parking permits. Taking parts of two spaces, or parking on the lawn, sidewalks or roadways is not permitted.

Reckless driving and speeding are prohibited at all times. Kirkwood's traffic and parking rules are based upon Section 206C.14 of the Code of Iowa. As the college has campuses located in various cities and towns, the local laws and ordinances also apply. Traffic and parking rules will be enforced as shown in the violations chart.

Administrative fees for violations will be considered the same as any other debt owed to the college. If a ticket is received, students must do one of the following:

  • Pay the fee at the cashier, 202 Kirkwood Hall.
  • Mail the fee to Kirkwood in the envelope provided.
  • Submit an appeal form within 48 hours. Appeal forms may be obtained and completed at, click "Parking."
