Summer Parking Updates
For visitors to MSU: There are no free parking areas on campus for visitors. We ask that all visitors park in our 134-space designated lot on the corner of South 7th Avenue and West Grant Street. Illegally parked cars will be fined $45. There is an information kiosk at the lot and an attendant to answer questions and provide directions. Parking rates in the lot are: free for the first half-hour; $2 for second half-hour to hour; 50 cents for each additional hour; $5 daily maximum; $1 6 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
As an alternative, visitors may purchase a $2.50 daily hangtag which allows parking in any of the lots designated SB, D, E or F on campus maps. Hangtags can be purchased at the above listed information kiosk or from the University Police, located at the corner of South 7th Avenue and Kagy Boulevard. Hangtags are not valid for any parking in spaces designated as reserved. Reserved spaces have signs delineating them as reserved and are located throughout campus in several SB lots.
Handicapped parking spaces are designated in red and located in convenient spots throughout the campus. An MSU parking permit and a state issued handicapped tag or handicapped plates are required to park in any handicap location.
For Students, Staff and Faculty: Numerous construction projects around campus will cause major changes to parking at Montana State University this summer. Changes are listed below and updates will be made regularly. For information about campus parking permits, policies or fines, please visit http://www.montana.edu/police/parkingservices.shtml.
UPDATE FOR WEEK OF August 4:
Old Gatton Lot (10), New Linfield Lot (19), and Faculty Court Lot (12) will undergo sweeping and re-striping the week of August 4.
The pay lot, the Quads (an E lot on the map), South 7th Reserved (an R3 lot on the map) and Johnstone Center will undergo sweeping and re-striping the week of August 11. Harrison Street will remain open, but there will not be any parking on the south side of the street during sweeping and striping.
These lots may not all be closed for the full week depending on weather and work required; check frequently.
