Parking at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayo Clinic temporarily suspended valet parking service in Rochester. All campus parking ramps remain open.
Many Mayo Clinic visitors find that they don't need parking while in Rochester. Free hotel shuttles, taxis, ride-share services like Uber and Lyft, and walking get most visitors where they need to go.
If you do plan to drive to your appointments, you'll find several options for parking. Here's what you need to know.
Downtown Campus parking
Rochester has metered parking on many downtown streets. However, parking here is limited to 30-minute, 90-minute or three-hour increments and fills quickly. You may be more comfortable parking in one of Mayo's downtown parking lots and ramps:
Located across the street from the Gonda Building at
15 3rd Ave. SW
Located across the street from the Charlton Building at
121 3rd Ave. NW
Located underneath the Baldwin Building at
221 4th Ave. SW
Baldwin Surface Lot
Located just behind the Baldwin Building at
424 3rd St. SW
Each of Mayo's downtown campus ramps are connected by pedestrian subways to other Mayo Clinic buildings — so you won't have to go outside if you don't want to. And all Mayo Clinic ramps have handicapped-accessible parking spots.
Rochester also has several city parking ramps, all of which are connected to Mayo Clinic's downtown campus by skyway. For ramp locations and rates, visit Rochester Municipal Parking.
Saint Marys Campus parking
Two Mayo Clinic ramps are available at the Saint Marys campus:
Located just east of the Generose Building at
1216 2nd St. SW

All Mayo Clinic ramps charge $2 an hour for the first hour and $1 for each additional hour, with a maximum of $12 a day.
