Parking Information

Season and Single Game Parking

Season parking passes are issued to I-Fund members for football, and men’s basketball as part of their I-Fund membership benefits.  

Single game parking for non-donors are available in designated lots and are sold on a first-come, first serve basis on game day.



Football Parking Map

All I FUND member Football season ticket holders will be mailed a parking lot request form in April. This form allows the I FUND member the chance to rank the lots that they would most like to park in for the season. The deadline to return this form is May 17, 2013. Since all fans will be issued a pass for a specific lot, there is no longer the chance that you will be turned away because a lot is full. Each fan will have a space saved for them, no matter the time they arrive for the game!

Buddy Parking

If fans are interested, they may elect to participate in our Buddy System parking program, which allows a group of friends to select a lot together so that they can park together on game day. If you are interested in taking advantage of this option, please click here to view the I Decide Buddy Parking Form. You and your group should fill out the form and return it to the ticket office by May 17, 2013.


Guidelines for Parking

Parking lots open to patrons starting at 7 a.m. and remain open until 10 p.m. (this excludes night games, which will close 1 hour after the completion of the game).  Overnight parking is not permitted in any of the lots.  Single game parking is available on first-come, first-serve basis on game day in designated lots surrounding Memorial Stadium.

Handicapped parking spaces, including can accessible spaces, are provided in the four quadrants of the Assembly Hall, south of Memorial Stadium.

Golf cart shuttle services are available to patrons that need assistance between the parking lots and the stadium on game days.  The shuttle service will begin two hours prior to kick-off and will run continuously up to 15 minutes prior to kick-off.  Shuttle services will resume at the end of each game as soon as pedestrian traffic allows.  Please refer to the football parking map for shuttle pick up locations.   Shuttle service will also be provided to patrons parked in the handicapped parking spaces in the Northwest, Southwest, Northeast, Southeast Assembly Hall lots.  Patrons parked in these spaces should remain by their vehicles and wait for the golf cart to approach them.  The pre-game drop-off and post-game pick-up locations at Memorial Stadiums for the West side will be on Kirby Ave. near Portal I and for the East side will be between Gates 15 and 17.

The following items or actions are prohibited in parking lots: open fires, weapons, fireworks, saving parking places, disorderly conduct, advertising banners or displays, picketing or political campaigning, tethered blimps, balloons, and other oversized inflatables.

Individuals in general parking lots areas may not anchor tents for personal use.  Personal tailgating tents and awnings must be 10’ x 10’ or smaller, and must fit within the boundary of one designated parking space.

Men's and Women's Basketball

Parking lots open to patrons 2 hours prior to the start of the game. Single game parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis on game day in lots surrounding the Assembly Hall (see men's basketball/women's basketball parking map).
