All parking on campus is handled by Iowa State’s Parking Division. This includes the lots next to our halls and apartments. Visit their website to learn all about where to park, how to get permits and visitor parking.


CyRide is the campus bus system. Routes run regularly throughout all of our hall and apartment communities. It’s easy to take CyRide to class or to places in Ames.


If you’re planning to bring a bike, follow these guidelines from ISU Parking and be sure to register your bike! We do have bike racks outside all of our halls and apartments.
