Super Bowl LII: Frequently Asked Questions

At this time, all classes will go on as scheduled. Students are asked to check their student email and stay in contact with instructors for any changes to class times or locations.

There will be significant congestion, lane changes and redirects leading up to, during and following the Super Bowl events. All students, staff and faculty are advised to allow additional time for managing traffic, mass transit lines and parking when traveling to the campus.  

For current information about street closings and reroutes, visit the Visitors Page online.

The parking ramp will be available for public parking at $20 per day from January 26 through February 4. This increased rate is waived for MCTC students and employees using their ID card to access the ramp.

With using a student/staff ID card for parking ramp entry, the rate will be $2.50/day as usual…This lowest parking rate per day for students and staff will be the held throughout the Super Bowl period.

NOTE: For those who need a replacement ID card, the cost is being reduced to $10 throughout the month of January. Contact Public Safety for more information.

Expect capacity on-street parking as parking will be less available.

Members of the community who work and attend class are encouraged to adjust arrival and departures times, allow extra commute time, or consider carpooling.

The safety of students, employees and anyone on campus is the highest priority for College officials.

But we need to keep in mind that historically, Super Bowls hosted in other cities have resulted in an increase in crime.

Public Safety requests everyone on campus be alert and help create a safer community. Be aware of activities including:

  • Unusual items or situations: a person wandering the halls, not on the main skyway; a package or luggage is left unattended; a window or door is open that is usually closed; or other out-of-the-ordinary situations.
  • Eliciting information: A person questions individuals at a level beyond curiosity about a building’s purpose, operations, security procedures and/or personnel, shift changes, etc.
  • Observation/surveillance: Someone pays unusual attention to buildings beyond a casual or professional interest. This includes extended loitering without explanation, particularly in concealed locations.
  • Be on the watch specifically for credit card skimmers, being vulnerable to identity theft and pick pocketing.

To report an emergency on campus, call (612) 659-6900.

To report suspicious activity, call (612) 659-6910.

Describe specifically what is observed, including:

  • Who or what you saw
  • When you saw it
  • Where it occurred
  • Why it’s suspicious
  • Last known direction of travel.

To request an escort, call Public Safety dispatch at (612) 659-6910.
