Metered Parking


Parking meters provide the most traditional, short term parking option at MSU. Generally, meter timing is set to provide rapid turnover, rates and duration of each meter are posted on the meter. Times and schedules vary; please check the meter before you walk away. If you pay the meter and it malfunctions, do NOT park there, you may receive a parking violation. Malfunctioning meters are NO PARKING ZONES.

All dormitory loops allow short term parking at meters or pay-by-plate spaces, and require payment from 6am-Midnight. Dorm loops do NOT allow parking from 2am-6am.

Campus meters only register United States coins and accept major credit cards for payment. Meters do not give change back nor are refunds issued for time paid for but not used.
