Due to other on-campus events, we anticipate that parking will be difficult on the evenings of Friday, October 18 and Saturday, October 19. Please plan on arriving early and allow extral travel time.

Because we anticipate that Lots 1B and Z will be congested, we recommend parking in Stadium Drive Garage.

You can skip the long lines at the parking pay stations by setting up a Parkmobile app account in advance. For Stadium Drive Garage, use Parkmobile zone number 6105 and your parking space number.
