UI Parking and Transportation Department offers vehicle jump-starts

The University of Iowa Parking and Transportation Department is offering to jump-start vehicle batteries for employees, students and visitors parked on the UI's main campus.

The service is offered on an as-available basis from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The service is not offered on university holidays.

To request service, call 319-335-8312. A dispatcher will gather contact information and other details and provide an estimated arrival time. To help service providers spot the vehicle, callers should raise the hood and wait in or near their vehicle.

Parking and Transportation Department staff cannot provide mechanical assistance or advice. If a vehicle will not start after getting a jump, the driver will be encouraged to contact a professional service provider.
