We’re excited to see you soon! As you plan your trip, keep in mind that East Lansing is in the Eastern Time Zone and observes daylight saving time.


If you are unfamiliar with East Lansing, please be aware that parking is challenging. We recommend arriving early in order to find parking and make your way to your program location. 

It is recommended that visitors park at either lot 79, South of Spartan Stadium, or at lot 62 on the north side of the Stadium. These lots both allow all-day parking at a rate of approximately $2.00 per hour.

You can view additional on-campus parking options by visiting and selecting “visitor parking” under "categories" in the menu. For more details on these additional parking options, see the resources provided by the MSU police or the City of East Lansing

Visitors should be aware that designated handicap-accessible parking, faculty/staff parking, metered parking and loading zones are enforced at all times. Failure to obey posted signs and regulations may result in ticketing. Michigan State University is not responsible for tickets nor will the university pay for or refund any fines from tickets.
