Parking & Directions
Northrop is centrally located in the heart of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus. Being on a lively campus means that there are a wide variety of easy ways to get to Northrop. Drive and park on campus, take the bus to any of the nearby bus stops, or ride the green line to the East Bank stop only a five minute walk away. We advise you to arrive early as parking space fills quickly when there are other on-campus events happening at the same time as Northrop’s. See the Parking and Transportation Services Calendar and a full list of U of M Twin Cities Campus events for any activities that may impact parking.
Prepaid reservations make event parking on campus so much easier, saving you a space in the ramp or garage of your choosing. You can make a reservation at the same time you buy tickets to any event happening in the Carlson Family Stage at Northrop. Reservations begin at 4:00 pm, unless otherwise noted, and are valid for entry up to 90 minutes after the start of the event. Reservations will be forfeited if you have not arrived by that time.
