Iowa City: Important information to know before you go


Parking is available across the street in the Newton Road Parking Ramp. Upon entering the ramp, you will receive a time-stamped ticket. We will provide you a parking voucher when you check-in that you will present with your time-stamped ticket to the cashier when exiting the ramp. 

Do not park in the meters across the street from the Medical Education and Research Facility (MERF) as those meters do not allow you to park for several hours and you will be ticketed. We can't reimburse you or pay for any tickets that you may receive while parking at the meters.

A map to the Medical Education and Research Facility (MERF) and Newton Road Parking Ramp can be found here. Click here for printable directions.
