All parking areas are clearly marked and vehicles parked in violation of College regulations are subject to citation by the Macalester Safety and Security Office and/or the St. Paul Police Department. Vehicles parked in College parking facilities must have a current registration with the Safety and Security Office. Parking and Bike regulations may be found on the facilities website. Anyone who is a nonresident of Minnesota may operate a vehicle with a valid driver's license from his or her home state.
