Residence Hall Guest Parking

24-Hour validated parking is available in designated stalls for guests of residence hall students who are not affiliated with the University. Minnesota State Mankato students and staff members are not eligible for validated parking. Validated parking can be completed at the Crawford, Julia Sears, McElroy, and Preska Front Desks.

Guests may use validated parking for daytime and overnight parking in designated stalls in Lots 14A and 15, with Lot 1 handling any overflow. 

To obtain validated parking, bring a photo ID and your license plate number to the Front Desk, as both are required to secure a permit.

Parking in stalls designated as Flowbird will require payment through the Flowbird app. These stalls are available for students, staff, or guests. The Flowbird app can be downloaded via the Google Play Store or Apple Store.

If validated parking is not secured from the Front Desk or if you did not register with the Flowbird app when required, you may be subject to a $38 parking ticket.

For further parking rules please view the parking guidelines handbook.
