University Park Plaza building

The press associations are in the University Park Plaza building, just east of the University of Minnesota’s East Bank campus in Minneapolis.

The building is near Interstate 94, east of downtown, and a half-mile east of the university’s TCF Bank Stadium. It’s also adjacent to the Prospect Park light-rail stop, on the green St. Paul line.


There is a small, short-term visitors lot with handicapped parking on the northeast corner of the building, off Southeast 29th Avenue. 

The University Park Plaza parking ramp features free visitor parking on the ground level. The entrance faces Southeast Fourth Street, near the corner of Southeast Fourth Street and 29th Avenue.

There is also metered MPLS Parking near our 2829 University Avenue SE building.
