Adequate parking is often a challenging and a controversial issue that plagues most university campuses and the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) is no exception. According to the UNI Public Safety Department records, there are approximately 8,936 parking spaces on campus. However, the number of students, faculty, staff, and visitors on campus exceeds 16,000 daily. Adding to the campus parking controversy is the high density street parking that accompanies neighborhoods located near campus, an undesirable characteristic to perennial residents of Cedar Falls, Iowa. This high density street parking is largely the result of rental housing in the area combined with off campus parking during the school week.
