Rather, all posted loading zone green curbs and residence hall meter spaces are being designated as 15-minute unloading zones from August 21st - August 25th. During this time period you may park in these spaces for up to 15 minutes to unload your vehicle without paying the meter.

You need to first register your vehicle online and can then pick up your parking permit at the Public Safety Building at any time, as they are open 24 hours/day.

    Renter's Insurance

    We strongly encourage our students to pursue renters insurance. You may arrange for renter's insurance through your own insurance company. MSUM does not insure personal belongings in student rooms. While we hope students will never need to file a renter's insurance claim, it is important to be prepared just in case.

    MicroFridge Rental

    A limited number of microfridges (combination refrigerator, freezer, and microwave) will be available for rental on a first come first serve basis. They are $75 per semester. Please contact or go to the Housing and Residential Life Office in Ballard Hall 120 for more information.
