Like most urban schools, the University of St. Thomas (UST) has an ongoing concern with parking. More than two thirds of our students, faculty and staff commute to the university.
Because of the complexity of parking on more than 20 surface lots and several parking ramps, procedures and regulations have been established to help provide fair and equitable parking.
To assist in understanding the topic of parking and transportation at UST, this brochure reviews parking and alternative transportation options, as well as all policies, procedures and regulations. All regulations contained within this brochure are subject to change at any time, without notice, as new parking issues may arise throughout the year. Every effort will be made to update this brochure and notify the community of any changes.
In order to be parked legally on property owned by UST, you must purchase and correctly display a valid UST parking permit or pay to park in one of the vistor parking ramps.
To qualify for a parking permit you must have a valid UST picture identification card and must be engaging in UST related business or events. To correctly display a parking permit, the permit must be hanging from the rearview mirror facing outward with the permit fully visible. Purchasing a permit does not guarantee a parking space and a lack of parking is not a valid excuse for any violation of parking regulations.
