Parking

Two parking meters and one disability parking space (permit required) are available directly in front of the Laboratory's main entrance.

More parking spaces are available nearby at parking facilities operated by the University of Minnesota. The closest parking facility is the Maroon lot, located at the corner of Oak Street and 6th Street SE, with an entrance off of 6th Street. See the parking map for specific information. The cost is $4.00 per day.

There is also a privately operated lot three blocks east of the MAST Laboratory (at the corner of 29th Ave SE and 4th St SE). The cost is $3.00 per 12 hour period.

Street parking is available in the surrounding area, but is also scarce when University classes are in session. On-street parking spaces are easier to come by during the summer months.

For more information, please consult the University of Minnesota parking information.

Snow Emergency

A snow emergency is usually declared when a major snow storm hits the city and the road crew starts to work on clearing the snow off the streets. In Minneapolis, the Snow Emergency Parking Rules must be strictly followed. Otherwise, vehicles parked on the wrong side of the streets will be towed.
