This policy has been established to help protect the safety of students, faculty, staff, and guests and to control motor vehicle traffic and parking on the campus of Kirkwood Community College. 

Kirkwood’s traffic and parking regulations are based on the Code of the State of Iowa. As the College has a variety of locations, local laws and ordinances also apply. Students, faculty, staff, and guests are expected to comply with these regulations. 

Traffic and parking violations such as speeding, failure to stop at a stop sign, reckless driving, and parking illegally are not permitted.

The majority of parking spaces on campus are to be used on a first come, first serve basis.  Students, faculty, staff, and guests may park in any of the non-designated parking areas.

  • Mail the fee to Kirkwood in the envelope provided.
  • Submit an appeal form within 5 days.
