With Target Field and the Twins moving in across the street from our campus…parking in the area is changing. Stay informed!!

Important parking updates and information

With Target Field in operation, local parking facilities may update their policies to accommodate game-day parking.  Some contract parking will only be valid weekdays from 6am-6pm, resulting in additional hourly or event charges after 6pm. Because policies vary, be sure to ask your parking facility for contract details to avoid unwanted confusion.

Please remember that there is no parking reserved for students at IPR!
Metered Parking is located along Washington Ave and most side streets. You can usually get 12 to 15 minutes per quarter. Be careful, you will almost always get a ticket if you are parked for longer than you paid for! Active meter hours are usually Monday through Friday from 8am-6pm. The rest of the time you may park for free for any length of time at the meters (but make sure to check your specific meter for times – they may vary).
