Parking Policies

Bringing a vehicle on campus is a privilege and not a right. Parking and driving on St. Thomas property are permitted in accordance with the regulations and information contained within the St. Paul Parking Guide and Minneapolis Parking Guide, along with this website.

Everyone operating a vehicle on campus should observe all city and university traffic and parking regulations. Vehicle operators must drive safely and give pedestrians the right of way at all times.

Right to Ticket & Tow

The University of St. Thomas reserves the right to ticket and/or tow any vehicle in violation of established parking regulations at the owner's expense. This includes the right to collect any fines or fees associated with the ticketing and/or towing of a vehicle. In addition, persistent violators may have their parking privileges revoked.

Parking at Your Own Risk

While surveillance cameras have been installed on campus, the university assumes no responsibility for care of, damage to, and/or protection of any vehicle or its contents at any time while it is operated or parked on campus. All vehicles should be locked when left unattended and valuables should be removed.

Parking Guides

To assist in understanding the topic of parking and transportation at St. Thomas, these parking guides review parking and alternative transportation options, as well as all policies, procedures and regulations. Regulations contained within these guides 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.

To be parked legally on property owned by St. Thomas, you must purchase a valid St. Thomas parking permit, and register and associate any vehicle to be parked on campus to an active parking permit, or pay to park in visitor parking areas.

To qualify for a parking permit you must have a valid St. Thomas picture identification card and must be engaging in St. Thomas related business or events. 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.
