Parking and accessibility

Parking can be found at the Atwater Parking Garage, located adjacent to Emeriti House (to the west, and on the same side of Atwater Avenue). During the work week, parking is free for those with IU’s EM-P (premium) permits; others must pay a fee. On weekends parking is free for everyone. Individuals with an EM-S (standard) permit (and any other permit except EM-P) must pay an hourly fee, but can park free of charge after 5 p.m. Those without a permit may park in the garage and pay the hourly fee directly to the attendant. If attending an Emeriti House event, you may park free of charge in the Atwater Parking Garage, take a ticket upon entry, and see the Emeriti House Manager after the event for validation ticket. Bicycle racks are located in the alley behind Emeriti House as well as inside the Atwater Garage.


Emeriti House is accessible to all. Ramp access is available for those with limited mobility.

Parking for those with IU Disabled permits is located in the alley behind Emeriti House. There are six clearly demarcated EM/RE (retired) parking spaces in the alley for Emeriti House use only. Visitors to Emeriti House should not park in these spaces during EH events unless they need to do so due to physical mobility issues.
