Service Philosophy of the Office of Parking Services

As members of a student-centered campus, we make the commitment to provide friendly, knowledgeable customer service and assistance in support of the University’s Shared Vision, Values, and Strategic Outcomes.

ADA Accessibility

The Office of Parking Services is dedicated to providing excellent customer service to all students of IU Northwest.  Those individuals who are wheel chair users will be offered equal access to our services in Parking Services. These individuals should ask Parking Services located in Moraine 113 for assistance at which time an associate will make the necessary arrangements to accommodate them.

1st Week of Fall, Spring, Summer I and II Classes
