Life can be unpredictable, but we’re here to help you get home.

Motorist Assistance

Because accidents happen

If you lock your keys in your car, run out of gas, or have a dead battery while parked on university property, help is just one phone call away.

From 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Monday–Friday, just call us at 812-855-9849 and ask for Motorist Assistance. Service is not provided during university holidays or weekends.

This service is free up to three times per academic year and is $40 for each additional call.

IU students, faculty, staff, and visitors conducting legitimate business on campus are eligible. The vehicle must be properly parked in a lawful parking space and display a valid parking permit, if required. We do not service motorcycles or scooters.

Services include

Please note that we do not provide towing or aid to motorcycles, scooters, or vehicles in an off-campus location.

The program assists with basic services like:

  • Dead batteries
  • Flat tires
  • Empty gas tanks
  • Keys locked in the vehicle
