Departments hosting a special event now have an alternative to validation tickets. Codes are an easy way for guests to enter and exit a parking garage. No more expired or invalid validation tickets!

What is a Code?

A code is a 5 digit number assigned to Internal Departments as a convenient way for them to pay for their visitor parking on campus. Most of our visitor garages have key pads at the entry and/or exit where a code can be entered. Codes can be set to be valid for individual events or multiple events depending on the department’s preference.

The charge for each use of the code upon exiting a garage will be $7 for FY17 regardless of the amount of time the visitor is in the garage.

NOTE: Codes should be treated as though they are cash. Departments are responsible for safeguarding their codes and should take steps to ensure they are only given out to the intended users. If you suspect misuse of a code, please contact actucker@iupui.edu to deactivate the code immediately. Your account will be charged every time the code is utilized, even if used by unintended parties.

Setting Up a New Code

Internal Departments requesting a code will need to complete the Code Order Form . We will need an IU account number to process the code request. The Fiscal Officer or a Delegate representing the account number will need to sign the form. Once the form is processed, a unique 5 digit code will be assigned to your department for the event. Please provide 3 business day advance notice when requesting a new code.*

*A $75 rush fee may be applied for any requests made less than 3 business days in advance.

Instructions for Using a Code

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are unable to provide the 5-digit codes in advance to your guests, instruct them to pull an entry ticket to enter the garage. During the event, take the entry ticket from the guest and provide them with the 5-digit code to use at the exit gate. If a guest inserts their entry ticket and then tries to utilize a code, the code will not work. In this case, hit the cancel button, remove the entry ticket and then enter the code followed by the # key.
