Anyone parking on campus must have a valid MSU parking permit or pay for metered parking. Metered parking outside the FRC is available on a first come, first serve basis. Campus Recreation is not responsible for any parking tickets assessed to our members.

Event parking

Campus Recreation will work with patrons to determine parking needs related to an event and will make all arrangements with parking administration for space needs for those without University parking passes.

For most events in the FRC, attendees may park in the visitor’s lot on National Avenue or at Bear Park North on Elm Street and ride the University shuttle. Parking generally carries a charge for off-campus attendees.

Off-campus FRC members

For on-campus departments sponsoring events where off-campus guests are invited, the guest passes are free if there is no charge to attend the event. Parking meters are enforced 24/7, Monday–Sunday.
Please contact Parking Administration for details on each lot before parking.

Off-campus patrons using the FRC on a weekday can pay $2.75 per car for a daily pass and will be assigned to a specific lot. No passes are required on weekends for the most lots.
