Athletics and Parking

Page address:

Another issue that was questioned was the accommodation of parking for athletic events on the Minnesota State University Campus. Presently, attendees to athletic events park wherever space is available subject to the present permit restriction system. One alternative suggested has been for the athletic department to direct patrons to specific parking lots (likely 20 through 23) and to begin charging attendees to major events for parking on campus. Under this plan, the athletic department would be responsible for all costs incurred but would be able to keep the parking revenue earned. Any costs incurred by the parking or security department would be reimbursed by athletics out of the generated revenue. This is not unreasonable as we have seen similar applications at other Universities. Athletics will charge for parking, keep the revenue but will be responsible for any costs incurred.
