Parking Tag Information

Parking Permits

WIU-Quad Cities campus buildings have parking lots for faculty, staff and students who purchase a hang tag. Student permits are $42 per year and Faculty/Staff permits are $90 per year. Permits are available for purchase at the Riverfront campus information desk. Your WIU Parking Permit is also valid at the WIU-Macomb Campus Q-Lot and at Black Hawk College's student parking areas.

Guest Parking Information

All guests and visitors to WIU-Quad Cities are required to obtain a guest parking permit to park on campus. Guests with permits may park in the 34th Street Lot or the University Drive West Lot. The University Drive East Lot is limited to WIU Faculty and Staff. Guest permits are available from the Security Office in Riverfront Hall 108.


Things to Remember

  • If your vehicle(s) already has a validation sticker from previous years, you DO NOT need a new validation sticker but the vehicle still needs to be listed on the registration card.
  • The fee for a replacement hangtag for any lost or stolen hangtag will be the current permit fee.
  • Hangtag registration is not considered complete until the validation sticker is affixed to the lower corner (passenger side) of the front windshield and the hangtag is displayed from the interior rear view mirror with the numbers facing the front of the vehicle.
