Family Weekend at the University of St. Thomas

FAMILY WEEKEND, OCTOBER 2-4, 2015, is an excellent opportunity for you and family members to re-connect and experience life at UST. Join us for a university lecture, participate in Purple on the Plaza, attend a UST football game, enjoy the musical talent of UST students, and attend mass and brunch with your student. Most of all, take the time to see why your student loves UST.

We look forward to seeing you during Family Weekend!


Public Safety will suspend ticketing in all of our surface parking lots. However, parking in restricted spaces, such as Admissions Parking Spaces, is still prohibited. You are invited to park in any of these lots, particularly Lot O on the South Campus.  Additional parking is available in the Anderson Parking Facility at Grand and Cretin Avenues for a modest fee.  If you choose to park in the Anderson Parking Facility, pull up to the gate and swipe your credit/debit card (do not take a ticket).  On the way out, you’ll swipe your credit/debit card again.

On Sunday, be prepared for several detours due to the Twin Cities Marathon.  Many of the streets surrounding campus will be closed during the marathon and traffic will not be allowed to cross Summit Avenue near campus after 7:30 am.  Driving in from the north (I-94 to Cretin Ave) will allow you to park in any of the available north campus lots so you can avoid trying to cross Summit Avenue by car.  We recommend using the entrance to the north side of campus at the corner of Selby Avenue and Finn Street.  If you are coming from the south, the only place to cross over Summit Avenue by car from south to north is at Ayd Mill Road.  Or, parking is available in Lots M or O on south campus and then you will need to cross Summit Avenue on foot.



If you have any questions don't hesitate to call (651) 962-6050.
