Parking at St. Catherine University is free for all events after 5pm weekdays, and all day Saturdays and Sundays. No permit is required to park in The O’Shaughnessy Lot, or other lots on campus at these times.
If you choose to park on the street, please pay close attention to posted parking restrictions. There is no O’Shaughnessy parking allowed in the Carondelet Center parking lot.
For event parking, please enter St. Catherine University Gate #4 from Fairview Avenue and park in The O’Shaughnessy lot. Follow the diagonal path to the tunnel between The O’Shaughnessy and the Music Building to get to the front entrance.
Accessible Parking for Show Attendance: Please enter the campus through Gate Number 3 from Randolph Avenue. Once you enter Gate #3 take a hard right – you will find accessible parking just south of Randolph Avenue. You may also continue and go straight once you have entered Gate #3 where you will find parking spots available behind The O’Shaughnessy. Once you have parked please proceed to the northwest of The O’Shaughnessy, where a ramp to an accessible entrance is located. The Ticket Office is just inside this door.
Dropping Off and then Locating Accessible Parking: Due to circumstances beyond our control, Mendel Road, which passes closest to The O’Shaughnessy’s accessible entrance, is closed for maintenance. For Guest Drop-off, please come early and enter Gate Number 3 off of Randolph Avenue, take a slight right, and an immediate left toward the Frey Theater. You’ll see barricades blocking Mendel Road, and you’ll also see two parking spaces marked for “Ticket Office 10 Minute Parking”. You may briefly park in one of those spaces to transfer the patrons with mobility issues to the O’Shaughnessy itself, which is just past the barricade.
You may not leave your vehicle here longer than it takes to get people inside, so please move your vehicle as soon as you can. There is reserved Accessible Parking nearby, or you may park in any open space in the area.
