Parking is available at each Metropolitan State location. Midway and LECJEC locations have surface lots, while Saint Paul campus and Minneapolis College locations have associated parking ramps.
At all of our locations, as a courtesy to our neighbors, please do not park in front of homes around campus locations; off-street parking is limited for local residents.

Metro State enforces all posted parking restrictions on university-owned or leased parking spaces, for spaces with posted restrictions such as handicap accessible, maintenance only, 30-minute limit, and reserved spaces. We also enforce improper parking such as parking in fire lanes, non-spaces, and taking up two or more spots. Security issues citations accordingly.
If you are issued a parking ticket and feel you should not have received the citation, follow this process to file an appeal.
The parking ramp at Minneapolis College, located on Hennepin Avenue at North Sixteenth Street, is open 24 hours a day. Handicapped accessible spaces are located on all levels of the parking ramp, next to the elevator lobby.
The cost of parking in the ramp by Metropolitan State University students is included in your Metropolitan State student fees. Use your Metropolitan State student ID card to access the Minneapolis College parking ramp. For more detailed information, visit Minneapolis College's parking page.
