Residence Hall Guest Parking

24-Hour yellow guest parking permits are available for guests of residence hall students who are not affiliated with the University. Minnesota State Mankato students are not eligible for a Yellow permit. Yellow guest permits are available at the Crawford, Julia Sears, McElroy, and Preska Front Desks.

Guests may use the yellow permit for daytime and overnight parking in designated stalls in Lots 14A and 15, with Lot 1 handling any overflow. Free permits are required Sunday from 3 p.m. to 12 p.m. (noon) on Fridays.

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

Between 12 p.m. (Noon) on Fridays and 3 p.m. on Sundays, guests are required to register as a guest via the Flowbird app. The app can be downloaded via the Google Play Store or Apple Store.

If a permit is not secured from the Front Desk or if you did not register with the Flowbird app when required, guests are subject to a $30 parking ticket.

For further parking rules please view the parking guidelines handbook.
