Parking Tips

Street parking is available on the streets bordering the Drake campus, or you may purchase a parking pass for a Drake lot.

Daily parking passes are available for $5 and allow purchasers to park in any Drake University commuter lot (see zone 4 and 5 lots under Parking in our interactive campus map) from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. on the day specified in the pass. Parking passes may be purchased online or at the Drake University Department of Public Safety office located on 25th Street. Parking accommodations for media and political events can be determined on a case-by-case basis.

If you would like to discuss campus parking for your event, please email Jarad Bernstein, director of communications, or call 515-271-3119.
