Parking and Traffic Regulations

Urban Construction Parking Alert

Due to limited parking spots during Urban Campus Expansion construction, Parking Permits are required for all parking spaces in the lots. Any students, faculty or staff visiting Urban Campus must have a DMACC Parking Permit to avoid ticketing. Note: Temporary Parking Permits may be obtained at the Urban Campus Building 1 Provost Office or Student Services.


Parking regulations are enforced at the Ankeny, Boone, Carroll, Newton, Urban and West Des Moines Campuses. The registered holder of a Parking Permit, regardless of who drives the vehicle, is responsible for that motor vehicle complying with all regulations. Violating parking regulations will result in fines.

Parking lots are marked with signs designating areas for DMACC students, faculty and staff. Visitors are encouraged to obtain a temporary parking pass at designated locations on each campus. Disabled parking spaces are available and designated with signs and pavement markings.
