Parking Rates

PUBLIC/VISITOR PARKING 

Public parking facilities and meters use the following rate structure when Event Parking is not in effect. 

  • $3 per hour during times of high demand (9 a.m. - 3 p.m., Monday - Friday) 
  • $1 per hour at all other times

Daily Maximum

The Daily Maximum (maximum amount charged in each 24-hour period after entry) varies by facility and ranges from $6 to $15. Facilities farther from the core of campus have lower Daily Maximums. The maximum length of stay at most meters is two hours. See the tables below for the Daily Maximum at each facility.

Early Bird Parking

Four locations offer an “Early Bird” discount on the Daily Maximum. Enter between midnight and 7 a.m. Monday - Friday and exit before midnight the same day for a Daily Maximum of $9 instead of $13. The four Early Bird Parking locations are: 

  • East River Road Garage (East Bank)
  • Oak Street Ramp (East Bank)
  • 21st Avenue Ramp (West Bank)
  • Gortner Avenue Ramp (St. Paul)

Consider the Daily Maximum when planning your trip to campus

Example: If you park at 9 a.m. on Monday and exit at noon, your charge at many facilities will be $9 (3 x $3 hours during a time of high demand). But if you park at a facility with a Daily Maximum of $6, your charge will be $6.
