Parking and Transportation Services

Welcome! Your Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) team is focused on keeping U of I moving. The beautiful campus and nearby downtown Moscow community are readily accessible by many people via walking or biking. For shorter travel times or longer distances, alternative transportation options are available. For Vandals with mobility concerns, Vandal Access pre-scheduled transportation provides access to facilities and programs on campus. Parking a vehicle on campus requires daily payment or purchase of an annual permit, subject to eligibility. Availability of a specific permit type or parking location is not guaranteed. 

Questions? Contact PTS at or 208-885-6424.

Orange lot 17, at Sixth St. south of Wallace, will close temporarily starting Monday, June 17. Lot 17 will undergo a complete rebuild, funded by parking permit revenue. The lot is scheduled for re-opening prior to the first day of classes in the fall. This important infrastructure upgrade will include:

  • Increased ADA access
  • A more durable, high-quality parking lot surface.

Idaho Avenue, between Rayburn St. and the Kibbie Dome, will be closed starting Thursday, June 6. The construction area will be fenced off, resulting in vehicle and parking restrictions to the site for approximately 90 days. This project will widen Idaho Ave. slightly, re-grade the road to make the slop more gradual, install sidewalks and better define pedestrian access to the ICCU Arena. There are no parking restrictions anticipated in connection with this project. Questions about the project should be directed to

Silver lot 5, west of Theophilus Tower, will be closed starting Friday, June 7. A crane will be positioned in the lot to perform a short-term construction project on the roof of Theophilus Tower. The closure is expected to last approximately two weeks.

Closure of Gold lot 40, behind the Administration building. Starting Monday, May 13, through approximately October, Gold lot 40 will be CLOSED for parking. View a map of the closure here. The lot will be used as the base for a construction project to widen Campus Dr., add a sidewalk to the north side of road and calm traffic. Vandal Reserved spaces will still be available. Alternate parking locations to Gold lot 40 include:

  • Gold lot 42, near the Niccolls building
