Go-to-College Program

Please make note of the following important information from UST Public Safety/Parking Services regarding parking when you come to campus for the Go to College Registration Event:

Beginning Wednesday July 30 and running for the next 3 weeks or so, there will be no access to Anderson Parking Facility (APF) and it will be closed for use until the projects are completed.  Guests and employees who have been using APF during the summer will need to find other locations to park. Access to South Campus will continue to be off of Summit Avenue and the cross over at the north end of campus. There will be limited parking in Lot O during this time. Also, Lot M is available most days. On the North Campus, there is ample parking in Morrison Ramp especially level R-3. Enter North Campus off of Selby Avenue and Finn Street N. Drive down to the entrance of the ramp. R-3 level is the second entrance closest to the football field.  As a reminder Lots P, X and Y, the lots on the east side of the St. Paul Seminary, are all restricted parking lots, even during the summer. These require a special permit and are not available for general parking. People in these lots without a proper permit are subject to being ticketed.  Increased traffic is expected along the drive aisles on South Campus. Drivers are asked to pay special attention to pedestrians and the other vehicles in the parking lots.  Signs are posted to remind drivers to go slow. Safety is paramount!
