Employee Parking Permit Renewal

New Parking Garage Validations Available—Beginning July 1

Employees who do not purchase a parking permit will be able to buy one-day validations to park in the Atwater, East, Fee Lane, Henderson or Luddy A/I garages.

Validations cost $5 each and must be bought in advance through the IU Parking Portal. Once purchased, validations will be added to your CrimsonCard which must be swiped to enter and exit one of the garages listed above. There is a purchase limit of 10 validations per month per employee. Unused validations will carry over to the future months, but will expire on June 30, 2022.

Garage Payment Options

Beginning June 1, we will accept CrimsonCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, MasterCard, or Visa at the garages for payment. Cash will no longer be accepted.

LPR Testing Continues

License Plate Recognition (LPR) testing will continue. Please be sure that your vehicle has a license plate facing the driving lane when parked.
