Once you have been issued a voucher, follow all directions for parking in the ramp, except you will use the voucher instead of a credit card, coins, or currency to pay at the paystation. You MUST take the voucher to the paystation. If you attempt to use the voucher at the exit gate, the gate will not open.
UST Departments and organizations can purchase vouchers for their guests through a Request for Service (RFS) or at the Parking Services Office, on the corner of Grand Ave. and Finn St. At the Request for Service page, select Public Safety & Parking Services, Visitor Parking Reservations and then either the St. Paul or Minneapolis campus.
