Geothermal Well Drilling Continues

As geothermal well drilling continues, additional parking spaces are being be displaced. Area C Lot 11 (across 10th Street from Castleman Hall) is scheduled to close at the beginning of July and will be closed until approximately December 2012. Area C permit holders can continue to park in Lot 11C until the lot closes. Alternate parking choices for Summer and Fall are listed below.  Please respond as soon as possible with choices for Fall semester.

When C 11 closes Area C permit holders may park in the following areas:

  • C 18 (lot across 10th Street from Rayl)
  • Area B (corner of 11th & State)
  • Meters are only authorized with payment
  • Area X (Bullmann Multipurpose Lot)


  • Please email or call parking as soon as possible to be added to the waiting list for other areas for Fall, excluding Areas F, M, A, and L.  Area C may park in Area X as space allows

See the updated construction schedule below. Please visit for more information regarding the geothermal project.

Lots 8 and 35 Closing May 24

Parking lots 8 and 35 will be closed beginning Thursday, May 24th for well drilling associated with the campus geothermal energy system.

If you are an Area L permit holder and you have not already, please notify parking of your alternate choice for parking: areas H, S, P or C.  During the Summer (through 7/31/12) you can park in your current area until space is no longer available.  At that time you can park in your alternate choice with your current sticker.  If you have any questions please contact Parking Lot Operations at 341-4303.  Further information will be provided as the project progresses.  Thank you for your patience as we work towards a more energy efficient campus.

Temporary Parking Relocation for Areas L & M

As a result of well field drilling, approximately 10% of university parking lots will be impacted by the geothermal energy project and will be temporarily displaced until well field drilling in the affected areas is complete.
The lots affected will include lot 5, 6, 8, 11, 14, 19, 27, 35, and 36; this will impact area M, L, and C permit holders. Area M and area L permit holders will have the option of applying for area S, H, C, and P permits during this time. They may be wait listed for any other parking area, however other areas may be full. Some lots in areas M and L lots will be impacted beginning in May with additional lots in those areas to follow. Once construction is complete in each lot and as space allows, original L & M permit holders will be reissued permits for the lots which they were originally assigned at no cost.
We ask for your patience during this period as we move towards a more energy efficient campus. When complete, many areas across campus including parking lots will look better than they do today as a result of the project. Also as a result, the overall parking availability for campus will be increased when the project is complete.
See below the schedule for parking construction and the areas affected. For general information about the geothermal energy project, visit If you have any questions regarding parking during this time, please contact Parking Lot Operations at 341-4303.

Groundbreaking Event, April 17

On Tuesday, April 17, Missouri S&T will host an unusual groundbreaking to celebrate the start of our geothermal energy project. Join us for this occasion as we officially kick off “Earth Week”–which culminates with the community-wide Earth Day celebration on Friday, April 20. The groundbreaking event on April 17 will take place at 4:00 pm on the Emerson Hall lawn at Missouri S&T, near the intersection of North Pine and 16th streets. (In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in the Kummer Atrium of Butler-Carlton Civil Engineering Hall.)

This geothermal energy project was approved by the University of Missouri Board of Curators in 2010. In keeping with our initiative to become a green campus, this project will reduce our energy costs and drastically cut our carbon dioxide emissions when completed.

Should you have any questions regarding the event, please call 573-341-4116.
