Holiday Parking Available to Citizens

The University of Idaho in an ongoing cooperative effort with the City of Moscow is offering off-street parking in several campus lots during the winter break, Saturday, December 21 through Tuesday, January 14. 

The City appreciates this option in light of the Snow Removal Proclamation Ordinance.  This ordinance requires that when a Snow Removal Proclamation is declared by the Mayor that vehicles parked on Snow Routes as outlined in the ordinance must be removed from the street.  This is information is outlined on the City's website at

With the possibility of snow during the winter break, this alternate parking provides an excellent option for residents along those routes to park vehicles elsewhere if they will be out of town during the break.

The lots available for students and residents during the break include:

  • Lot 2 – Railroad Street & College Avenue
  • Lot 36 – Deakin Avenue & University Avenue
  • Lot 66 – Elm Street behind the Student Union Building
  • Lot 28 – South end of Ash Street
  • Lot 64A – Off of 3rd Street
  • Lot 5 – Paradise Creek Street & Rayburn Street
  • Lot 25 – Rayburn Street between State Hwy 8 & Paradise Creek Street
  • Lot 62 – Paradise Creek Street & Stadium Drive

For more information on parking on the University of Idaho campus, visit the Parking and Transportation Services webpage at

Parking in these lots is at the owners risk and vehicles must be removed by January 14.  After January 14, vehicles will be subject to parking regulations as outlined by the University of Idaho Parking Regulations for each of the lots.

Additionally, the University of Idaho will not be allowing overnight parking on campus streets during the winter break.  Any vehicle stored on campus for the break, or left overnight for any reason should park in one of the lots listed above. Vehicles parked overnight on campus streets will be eligible for citation and/or towing.

The City thanks the University for providing this space for residents and appreciates the ongoing partnership we have both enjoyed throughout the years.
