Directions and Parking

Gloria Dei is located on the corner of Market and Dubuque streets in Iowa City (see map below).

On Sundays & Holidays
Our lot is found just west of our building, off Market Street and is available to all worshiping with us.   Additional spaces along the alley are available as well.

Two spaces near the main entrance and two in back at the east end of the alley are designated for handicapped parking.   Both of these entrances are handicapped-accessible.

City parking meters on the north side of Market street and in the city lot across from Gloria Dei are not enforced on Sundays and evenings, and so free parking is available there.  The city also allows worship marking on the unmetered south side of Market Street.  

We have 30 free parking spaces available on Sundays and evenings in the ramp under the Pappajohn Building off of Clinton Street.  Please note, however, that you must have a special permit displayed on your dashboard to these spaces.  They are available by contacting the church office.

During the week
Our main lot to the west of our building is renting out each weekday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Members may not park in any of the numbered spaces on weekdays until after 6pm.  In addition, spaces 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 are rented from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays.

Members of Gloria Dei may park along the alley when coming to the church during the week. We ask that members do not park there if they are not in the building. 

Members need to display their parking permit at all times. Weekday visitors  are asked to check in at the office for a parking pass.  

Permit parking is strictly enforced and violators are regularly towed.
