Motorcycle Parking

Motorcycle parking permits are available at the University Police Office. Motorcycles are not allowed to use the regular hanging parking permit.

Motorcycle Semester Permit - $10.00
Annual Motorcycle Permit - $20.00

Proper Placement of Parking Permit

An IU Southeast parking permit is a hanging permit placed on the rearview mirror to be visible outside the vehicle. If for some reason your vehicle does not have a rearview mirror or you are unable to display the permit in this way you may place it in the driver side lower portion of the front windshield.

A motorcycle permit must be displayed in a visible area of the motorcycle, preferably on one of the front forks.


A defective permit should be exchanged immediately. There is no charge if the defective permit is turned in for a replacement. In the event a replacement is requested without the old permit, including lost/stolen permits, a $10.00 replacement fee will be charged to the owner. If a lost permit is found after it has been reported, return it to the University Police immediately. Use of the permit may result in fines and vehicle impoundment.

Parking permits should be removed from a vehicle before ownership is transferred, upon termination of association with the University, expiration of the permit, or receipt of a permit to take the place of a previously expired permit.

Daily permits are available at the dispensers located by each entrance to campus for persons who forget their regular permit. Available payment types are credit card, and CrimsonCard.
