Former Wishard Garage Update!

The gates for the former Wishard Garage, will be going down on the morning of Saturday, January 11th, 2014. Regular parking rules will be in effect and you MUST have a former Wishard Garage permit or an "E" permit to park in that garage.

Note: The normal "park down" rules will not apply in this garage, meaning "A" & "B" permit holders will not be eligible to park in the "E" spaces.

Parking at IUPUI Just Got Easier!

The former Wishard Garage, located on Wishard and University Blvds., will soon become part of IUPUI parking!

As Wishard administration is busy preparing to move into their new facility, IUPUI Parking Services is busy making plans too! Effective December 9, 2013 the former Wishard Garage will transfer to IUPUI, and we are planning ahead! Did we mention it has 1,200 spaces?


While there are still many decisions to be made, we know you have a lot of questions. How do I sign up? When can I start parking there? How much will it cost? Scroll down for the answers to those and other FAQs. In addition, the Parking Services website will serve as a main source of information so be sure to check back often for updates.

Stay in Touch for the Latest Updates!

We are excited about the opportunity to bring this newest parking option to you! We greatly appreciate your patience while we continue the planning of the facility. Parking Services utilizes many means of communication, so make sure to tune in to one or all!

Former Wishard Garage FAQs

Who can park in this garage?

Anyone eligible to purchase an IUPUI permit may purchase a permit for this garage. Visitors will also be accommodated.

How much does it cost?

The cost for parking in this garage is the same as all other garage permit parking prices – currently $61/monthly.

Is parking guaranteed in this garage like the other permit garages?

Yes, absolutely. This is a great benefit to parking in a garage. We never oversell the amount of spaces, so you will never have to worry about finding a parking space in any garage.

How do I sign up?

Log in to your Parking Services account. Select Manage My Waitlist Requests and select Wishard Garage. (There is currently no waiting list for this garage. However, the waiting list module is the best administrative tool for accessing and responding to your interests and needs.)

Can I get a reserved space in this garage?

Yes, absolutely. You can even pick the space you’d like to reserve! With a reserved permit, you also get “A” permit privileges which also allows you to park in surface lots whenever you need to. (And remember “A” permits can park down, so your reserved permit is also valid in “B” and “E” surface lots too!)

I currently park in the Eskenazi Garage. Can I move to the Wishard Garage?

Yes you can. You will need to upgrade your existing permit to a garage permit. Make sure to add your name to the Wishard Garage waiting list.

What if I already have another garage permit, but I want to park in this garage?

No problem at all. When the time comes, you can visit us in the office and we will be able to simply swap out your existing garage permit to this garage permit.

When can I park in the garage?

At this time, we are estimating January 3, 2014 as the date you will officially be able to swipe your new garage permit and begin parking in the garage. We will continue to post information on the Parking Services website as it becomes available.

When can I get this permit?

Sometime around mid-December we will send emails to everyone on the waiting list indicating they are welcome to visit us in the office to get their new garage permit.

Will the Brown Line revert back to its original route (stopping in front of Riley Hospital)?

We are currently reviewing the Brown Line and will have more information soon to come.

Will the garage be renamed?

Yes. Naming is in process.

Can motorcycles park in this garage?

Yes motorcycles are welcome.

What do I do if I already park in the Wishard Garage, and want to continue parking here?

Although there is currently no waiting list for this garage, our waiting list module is the best administrative tool for communicating with you, so you will need to add your name to the list. Log in to your Parking Services account, select Manage My Waitlist Requests and select Wishard Garage. Read the other FAQs for more information.

I currently park in the Wishard Garage. Can I use the same permit?

No. IUPUI and Wishard operate on 2 different systems. Beginning on December 9th, if you wish to park in the Wishard Garage, you will need to purchase an IUPUI permit or pay visitor rates.

What should I do with my Wishard Garage permit after the change is made?

AFTER December 9th, you may simply discard your Wishard Garage permit.

Will Lockefield Village parking be available to IUPUI on December 9, and what type of permit will I need?

Yes, this parking lot will become part of IUPUI parking on Monday December 9. The lot will be designated “A” permit and visitor parking only.

Will the physicians lot (just north of the Simon Family Tower and Riley Hospital) be available December 9?

No, at this time it is undetermined when IUPUI can expect to get this lot. Stay tuned for more information.

Will the tunnels connected to the Wishard Garage be open for public use?

No, unfortunately the tunnels will no longer be accessible to the public.

Can "E" permits park in this garage?

Yes! There will be a limited number of "E" spaces available. Pull into the south entrance of the garage off of West Walnut St. and follow the signs.
