Parking Tips & Tricks


  1. Did you know that there are 13 maroon parking lots on campus? Avoid the crowds and try these less popular lots: M1, V, T4 Overflow
  2. Did you know that maroon permit holders can also park in any of the white lots?
  3. Did you know that multiple vehicles can use the same permit? Register as many vehicles as you wish here and then simply move the permit from one vehicle to another. Split the cost with your friends!
  4. Did you know all students can ride the DTA for free with a UCard? It's called the UPass Program. Avoid the weather. Jump off and on right outside the Kirby Plaza doors.
  5. Did you know motorcycle and moped parking is free? Spaces are available campus-wide.
  6. Did you know you can put your bike on the front of a DTA bus? Here’s how.
  7. Did you know the DTA has a Park & Ride located on Calvary Rd? Park there for free and jump on the bus.
  8. Did you know that Rave Guardian is a free smart-phone app that provides University of Minnesota students, faculty and staff with access to Virtual Escorts and other helpful safety and security resources on campus?
