Parking at Montana State University:

When parking on campus at Montana State University, a parking permit is required.  Parking permits are $2.50/day, and may be purchased from the two locations starred in pink on the map (The police station—open 24/7, or the Visitor Information Kiosk—located by the pay parking lot).    

You may also park in the “pay parking lot” on campus for $6.00/day, however it is highly suggested to purchase a parking permit due to limited spaces in the pay lot.  

Directions to Police Station/Parking Kiosk:
Please follow the pink highlighted route to either the MSU Police Station or the Visitor Information Kiosk located off of Kagy Blvd. on 7th Ave.

Directions to suggested parking lots:
Suggested parking lots for RCC attendees are starred in yellow on the map.  These lots include North and South Gatton lots.  The RCC will be located in the Student Union Building Ballrooms, which are located directly North of these lots.
