Athletics Event Parking

Parking on campus for athletic events is subject to University parking policies and regulations.

Event Parking - Event parking permits will be required seven days a week for any vehicle wishing to park within a designated event lot. All other non-event parking areas will remain under existing campus parking regulations and will be enforced from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week.

Event Parking Permits - The current event "per-vehicle" fee will be charged for all pre-sale and on-site event-parking permits. Campus quarterly, annual and Emeritus parking permits are honored in lieu of purchasing a separate event parking permit, however, daily and other limited-term parking permits will not be honored in the designated event lot(s). Campus parking permits will not allow patron access into designated preferred or disabled parking areas without additional authorization. 

Event Parking is $10 per vehicle.
