parking and buses
Please read parking instructions carefully before parking on the UND campus. Private lots are only for students and faculty, parking there may result in ticketing. Below is a list of available parking spaces for schools, vendors, and attendees.
UND’s college semester is active and in session, along with an at-home UND hockey game at the nearby Ralph Engelstad Arena on Friday and Saturday. This may impact parking in some areas. Look out for special instructions.
UND has provided free parking for the entire 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors of the parking ramp next to the union. Please ignore the pay signs as they will not be enforcing them (2716 Second Ave N, Grand Forks, ND 58203)
Buses will be encouraged to drop students off at the bus “loop” in front of the Memorial Union on University Ave. Buses can pull into the bus stop and drop off their students. They should then proceed to the primary bus parking along the west side of the street on Strinden Road, next to the Chester Fritz Auditorium parking lot. This area is zoned for ‘Passport Parking’ but is okay for buses to use for this event. Overflow bus parking can be found at the NDUS Core Technologies Services building.
The UND EERC parking lot can find overflow parking if the parking garage is full. Attendees are also encouraged to find free parking on the streets of Princeton, Oxford, Harvard, Cambridge, Hamline, University Ave, or 5th Ave N. Otherwise, attendees can check this website to find “Pay as you go/Passport Parking” spots on campus.

Rest assured, UND dining facilities are prepared to cater to most dietary restrictions. Inform a dining staff member of your needs. All UND dining options and convenience stores operate cashless, accepting Debit Cards, Credit cards, and Apple Pay. If a person doesnt have a debit/credit card or Apple Pay, a prepaid debit card will work.
Remember that dining locations can get busy on weekdays (11:00 am–2:00 pm). To optimize your dining experience, consider enjoying your meals outside these peak hours. If you dine during this period, be prepared for a potential wait time, which may extend beyond 30 minutes. Please note that a few dining options may be closed on the weekend.
