Parking Information for Fall Festival Weekend
If you plan on arriving on campus between 1:00p.m. and 1:45 p.m. we suggest that you do not use the main entrance but rather an alternate entrance into the north campus such as the Oak St. entrance. The parade route will force some road closures at this time.
Due to the number and scope of some events, parking on campus may become limited. Look for parking in Field 6 (in the areas surrounding the Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex) and in Field 7 (the parking lot that runs parallel to Oak Street). If you have a handicapped parking permit in your windshield, you may park at the handicapped-designated areas at the above parking lots. Parking is also available on the South Campus (which is about a 5-10 minute walk to the Student Center through the Unispan.) If you hold a special parking permit because you purchased your tickets by September 1, you have reserved parking at the parking lot 6A but on Saturday only.
