General
  • MTSU has a mobile app. Download it to help with campus navigation.
  • The main MTSU maps and directions page can provide valuable tips for getting to campus.
  • Please note that we have reserved spaces within the designated lots; you MUST park in the reserved section or you might be ticketed.
  • In order to get into the reserved spaces, you need to print the parking pass and bring it with you. The lot attendants will not know you are authorized without the pass.
  • If you have an appropriate disabled parking decal, you may park in any designated spot on campus without a special permit.
NOTE: Middle Tennessee Boulevard may still be under construction, so images from Google may not be entirely accurate. Please plan for serious delays related to lane closures and possible street closures.
