Maps and directions
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.
Students attending the prospective or transfer student admissions presentations will report to the third floor of the MSU Union, located between Grand River Avenue and Circle Drive on Abbot Road. Students attending a Be a Spartan Day, Green and White Day or any other admissions program should refer to their confirmation email for program location.
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.
The visitor parking lot (62W) north of Spartan Stadium is recommended and allows all-day parking. The cost is approximately $1.60 per hour. Alumni with a valid MSU Alumni Association membership card will receive half off their parking fee in this lot. Cash or check are the only forms of payment accepted.
You can view additional on-campus parking options by visiting maps.msu.edu and selecting the “visitor parking” icon in the left-hand menu.
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.
To get from the visitor parking lot (62W) to the MSU Union, following the walking route planned through Google Maps is suggested.
