University of Minnesota


1- Arrive early and stay late!Parking facilities open 6 hours before the start of game, but not before 7 am and close four hours after the game, or at midnight, whichever is earlier.

2- Park on the St. Paul campus! It is a great option for anyone living on the east side of the Cities.  Free football shuttles make it easy to park in Lot S108 (near the State Fairgrounds) and take the 8-minute ride right to the stadium. Note: this is NOT offered for August 8 and 16 pre-season games.

3- After pre-purchasing your parking, watch your email for arrival and exiting maps informing you on the best route to your parking.  Use these maps to be prepared on how traffic flows out of campus after large events (police officers control some intersections to get fans home as quickly as possible). Fans should anticipate that streets will be congested for about one hour after the game. Incidents on the roads can increase exiting time. Click here for the campus map.

By pre-purchasing your parking, you know exactly where to go to park and you can get to your stadium seats stress-free. It’s convenient to buy now here and have a specific destination on campus.
