Gameday parking restrictions will be in place beginning at 5 a.m. each Saturday of a home football game. Faculty, staff and student gameday parking options are as follows:

Faculty, staff and student parking:

  • Students who live on campus must relocate their vehicles to one of the following areas: Rugby and Wilson student lots, Fischer Graduate Residence Lot (F permit required), Lake Lot and D Bulla Lot, and the Blue Lot (White North) beginning at 8 a.m. (valid student permit required). If you leave campus, you are not guaranteed parking on campus until two hours after the game. Vehicles parked in the Dorr Road Lot after 5 a.m. will be towed.
  • Off-campus students may park in the Blue Lot (White North) beginning at 8 a.m.. There is no cost for parking in Blue North with a valid student permit.
  • Faculty/staff parking is available in the Blue Lot (White North), or the Bulla Lot (state-issued ADA permit required). There is no cost for parking in the above areas with a valid faculty/staff permit.

Vehicles parked after 5 a.m. in any area not designated as approved student or faculty/staff gameday parking will be towed.

General parking information:

  • Parking is prohibited on campus after 5 a.m. on Saturdays of home football games without a football parking pass. Vehicles left unattended in an event parking lot will be towed prior to the posted parking lot open time.
  • Event parking lots open at 8 a.m. and require a football parking permit. Overnight parking is prohibited in all event parking lots.
  • Tailgating in the Lake Lot is strictly prohibited.
