Parking on Campus​

A new theatre building is being constructed at Macalester. While we are excited about this change, it does mean that parking lot West 1 will be closed during construction. You may park in any of the other four on-campus parking lots (Visitor 1 and 2, West ​2 and ​3​,​ and South) or on the surrounding streets. Please note any posted parking restrictions. A small Admissions Visitor parking lot is located directly behind 77 Macalester Street. View our campus map.
