Parking on campus near the Colvard Student Union may be extremely limited and we strongly urge you to utilize the shuttle from the Marriott. If you would like to drive to campus, please use one of these two options:
Parking Garage: MSU now has its very own parking garage (walking distance to the union) which can be accessed for a small fee. The pay machines are in the exit lanes and only accept credit and debit cards - no cash or coins. Old Main Academic Center is located at the intersection of Barr Avenue and George Perry Street next to the Chapel of Memories. Visit parkingservices.msstate.edu/visitor-parking under Old Main Academic Center Parking Garage.
Visitor Parking Pass: Park outside the parking garage by printing off a visitor parking pass at parkingservices.msstate.edu/visitor-parking. Metered parking, garage parking, staff zones, service areas, handicapped spaces, and gated spaces cannot be used with a visitor pass.
Our local airport, Golden Triangle Regional Airport, in Columbus, MS., is only a few minutes from MSU, and is heavily used by the university community. Flights are limited and subject to change.
