Super Bowl LII and MCTC: What You Need to Know

The countdown to Super Bowl Lll is underway!

MCTC will be open for business as usual with increased security on campus during this special time period. Due to road closures in Minneapolis and increased population around the Super Bowl Live and other events, we're expecting significant traffic delays and parking shortages in downtown Minneapolis from Tuesday, Jan. 23 through Tuesday, Feb. 6.

As many as 1 million visitors and 10,000 volunteers are expected during the Super Bowl events. The majority of the visitors are expected to be in town Thursday, Feb. 1 - Sunday, Feb. 4.

The Public Safety Department and Administration at MCTC have been working with the NFL, the City of Minneapolis Public Works, Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District, Super Bowl Host Committee, Minneapolis Police Department, Department of Homeland Security, Minneapolis Office of Emergency Management and others to ensure that the experience for both commuters, residents and visitors be as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.

MCTC's Public Safety will have additional officers on duty and at the Public Safety desk.

Plan Ahead - Classes Will Go on as Scheduled

At this time, all classes will go on as scheduled in their assigned classrooms. Students are asked to stay in contact with instructors for any changes to class locations. We encourage all MCTC students, staff and faculty to allow added time for traffic and parking if you are coming to the campus.

Any changes will be communicated by your instructors using your MCTC email.

Changes to Campus Access by Car, Public Transportation and on Foot

Plan for increased auto and pedestrian traffic during this time period.

Expect capacity on-street parking as parking will be less available. Bus routes will be moved off Nicollet and onto Hennepin so expect some delays and restrictions in public transit.

Therefore, departments and individuals planning meetings and events on the Minneapolis campus are encouraged to avoid scheduling them during Super Bowl activities to avoid operational issues.

It is our intent to have on-campus parking space available for all of our students and employees.

Changes to Parking in Ramp

The parking ramp will be available for the public at $20.00 for the dates Jan 26 - Feb. 4.

MCTC students and staff have regular parking rates and will not have to pay the higher rate if you use your ID card to access the ramp.

The lowest rate is if you have money applied to your student/staff card at $2.50/day. For the month of January, the cost for replacement cards is reduced to $10.00. Members of the MCTC community who drive to work and attend class on campus are encouraged to carpool.

Information about using public transit is available on the Super Bowl website.
