New membership cards for 2023–24 were mailed by mid-August to those who have renewed their UMRA membership for the coming year. The cards include the QR code for one of the great benefits that comes with UMRA membership: a discounted rate of $1 per hour in University parking facilities. The parking discount is good through June 2024.
Forgotten whether you’ve renewed your UMRA membership? You can check online at umra.umn.edu.
At the upper right on the UMRA home page, click on “Member Portal” and choose “Renew Membership” from the drop-down box (login required). This will take you to a form that shows your membership information. Review and make changes if needed, scroll down to the bottom, and click “Save Changes & Renew.” This will take you to a form to complete your renewal. At the top of this form, you’ll see a message telling you the last date you renewed. If you’ve already renewed, you’re good to go. If not, please complete the form and pay.
