Minneapolis campus

Minneapolis full-time day students who purchased parking only for the fall 2012 semester must renew their parking contract by 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 2. This renewal will ensure their ability to park on campus for J-Term and spring semester 2013.

Permit registration will open on Monday, Dec. 10. Register through Murphy Online; choose the Parking Services link. At the time of purchase, bring a printed copy of the registration to Parking and eXpress Card Services, located in Room 252, School of Law.

New and returning students who did not purchase a fall semester parking contract and permit but who wish to purchase a permit for spring semester also must register online starting Dec. 10.

Sales and renewal of parking permits will continue through 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 2, at the Minneapolis campus Parking and eXpress Card Services.

Students who do not renew their parking permit will have their parking privileges suspended at 4 p.m. Jan. 2. All contract cards for contract holders choosing not to renew their current contract also must be returned to Parking and eXpress Card Services prior to the Jan. 2 deadline. This will ensure that students will receive their $30 refundable deposits from Parking Services.
