    Visitor Parking Vouchers

    Occasionally, a department may pay for your parking. Exactly how that voucher works depends on the campus you are visiting.

    Parking Vouchers for the St. Paul Campus

    You will be provided with a parking coupon code (a series of letters, words or numbers) prior to your arrival on campus. Park in the location as directed by your campus host. After you have parked, make note of your license plate number and proceed to the pay station. At the pay station, enter your license plate number and enter the length of time you plan to park. When asked if you have a coupon, press 1 for "yes" and enter the coupon code provided. If you plan to stay longer than the amount of time allotted by your coupon code, you will need to pay the balance by credit card.

    Parking Vouchers for the Minneapolis Campus

    Take a ticket upon entering the 11th and Harmon Parking Ramp. When you exit the ramp, first insert your ticket, then use the voucher provided by your campus host to pay for your parking.

    NOTE: St. Thomas departments and organizations can purchase vouchers or coupon codes for their guests through a Request for Service (RFS) or at the Minneapolis (TMH 106) or the St. Paul (ASC 253) Parking and Transportation Services Office. At the Request for Service page, select Public Safety and Parking Services, Visitor Parking Reservations, then choose the St. Paul or Minneapolis campus.
