Parking procedure changes for move-in, Aug. 24-25

On Wednesday, Aug. 24, and Thursday, Aug. 25, the university will welcome to campus the Class of 2026. To make the move-in process as smooth as possible for new students and their families, please take note of some disruptions to parking procedures on these days.  

Plan to allow a few extra minutes for your arrival and departure from campus. MUPD will close the 700 blocks of 13th, 17th and 18th streets beginning around 7:30 a.m. throughout most of the day. Please consider ride-sharing or taking alternative means of transportation to campus if possible.  

If you routinely park in the 16th Street structure or Wells Street structure, please be aware of the following:  

  • Because 17th Street will be closed, those who regularly park in the 16th Street structure will only be able to access the structure through the entrance on 16th Street.  
  • Regular 16th Street structure parkers should plan to park on one of the top three levels of the structure (levels 4, 5 or 6). This will then free up the lower three levels for new students and their families.  
  • Regular Wells Street structure parkers are asked to park on one of the top four levels of the structure (levels 4, 5, 6 or 7). This will assist with the parking needs for students moving into Cobeen Hall, Carpenter Tower, Schroeder Hall and Abbottsford Hall. 

Additionally, parking will be limited in Lot D on Thursday, Aug. 25, to accommodate food trucks as a part of New Student Orientation.
