Welcome to Arkansas State University!
+ Campus alert: A-State Closed Jan. 16

A-State Closed on Jan. 16 due to winter precipitation.

Arkansas State University is closed today, Tuesday, Jan. 16, due to winter precipitation. All winter response staff members are requested to report to their duty stations.

Overnight, snow fall made conditions for students, faculty and staff hazardous.

"Our administrative team determined the snowfall was going to be heavier than forecast and while today was scheduled to be the first day of class for the spring 2018 semester, I've decided it is best that we cancel classes for today," Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said.

All classes at the Jonesboro and Paragould locations are cancelled. Online classes continue.

While offices and classes are closed, university residential life areas continue to operate to support the on-campus student population.

For students living on-campus, Acansa Dining Hall will operate under "brunch hours" with service from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and then 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

For updates on A-State events, please check the university’s official website AState.edu or social media feeds, Facebook.com/ArkansasState or @ArkansasState on Twitter.

Visitor Parking


Visitors to campus have two convenient options available for parking:

Visitor Spaces

Visitors may park in designated visitor parking zones (no charge) indicated with the blue and white visitor signage as seen on this page.

Metered/Garage Parking

Visitors may use paid meter or garage parking. Payment is required at the rate displayed from the meter/pay station. No permit is required.

Campus way finding signage provides directions to visitor parking zones. Meters are conveniently located near the entrances of key buildings on campus. Garage parking is available at the North Parking Deck located on Caraway Rd. 


Vendors and service providers conducting business on campus may park in designated visitor parking zones (no charge) upon their first visit to our campus. Subsequent visits will require the purchase of a business parking permit.

A business permit authorizes parking in faculty/staff parking zones and service/delivery zones as well as general unrestricted commuter zones. The purchase fee is $70.00, and the permit is valid for one year from date of purchase. The fee must be paid at the Cashier Window located on the second floor of the Reng Student Union. A permit may then be obtained at the A-State Parking Services office, 2301 E. Johnson, Ste. D (corner of Caraway/Johnson).

A permit will not be issued without proof of payment. Please have vehicle information available (make, model, year, license plate number, etc.).
