Football Gameday Parking Restrictions

Gameday parking restrictions will be in place; beginning at 5:00 a.m. each Saturday of a home football game. Faculty, staff and student gameday parking options are as follows:


Faculty Parking on Gameday

  • 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 5:00 a.m. in any area not designated as approved student or faculty/staff gameday parking will be towed to another area on campus.

General parking information:

  • Parking is prohibited on campus after 5:00 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 8:00 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.
  • Vehicles must leave event parking lots after the football game is over. Burke North and South Lots close two hours after the game concludes. All other lots close three hours after the game ends.
  • Review the Gameday Parking and Shuttle Map for lot locations and shuttle routes.  
  • All areas are subject to Parking and Tailgating Regulations.

2022 Faculty/Staff Football Parking

Parking for faculty, staff, and students with a valid permit is free in White Field. ADA parking is also available for free for faculty, staff, and students with a valid permit and a state-issued hang tag or license plate in the Bulla Lot on Bulla Road. All other campus lots are subject to special restrictions during home football game weekends and special events.

Reserved Parking Program

The Reserved Parking Program, available to full-time faculty and staff members, serves as a convenience to those seeking a permanent parking space. To participate in this program, faculty and staff members must enter a waitlist to request a space based upon their first or second choice in any lots containing reserved parking.

Reserved spaces are available in the Bookstore, Bulla, Dunne, Fischer, Grace, ROTC, Stadium, Stayer and Wilson Faculty/Staff lots. There is no cost to be placed on the waitlist. 

The annual cost for a reserved space is $528 ($44/month). This fee is evenly divided and paid as a pre-tax deduction from the individual’s paycheck each pay period.

Waitlist Management through ParkND

Please login to your ParkND account, and visit the Parking Portal to add, edit, or delete your Reserved Parking Waitlist preferences. 

You may edit your 1st or 2nd choice preferred parking lot waitlist, and you may also view your rank (or position) on each waiting list.

The Parking Services Office will notify you by email when a space becomes available. Your acceptance or declination of any waiting list offer will remove you from all waiting lists on your ParkND account.

Important Note: You may enter a maximum of two waiting lists through ParkND.

Reserved Parking FAQ


Q: Do I have to use payroll deduction? May I pay in a lump sum?

A: Participants in the reserved parking program must pay for this benefit as a pre-tax payroll deduction. In order to retain the pre-tax option, payments must be made through payroll deduction and may not be paid in a lump sum. The payment of $528.00 will be evenly divided over the course of the year and deducted from each pay period (once per month for faculty; twice per month for staff), beginning with the first pay period after July 1, 2019.

Q: May I pay for this with a university or departmental account?

A: No, department or university accounts may not be used to pay for reserved parking.

Q: Does my reserved parking space apply on football game days or during other athletic or special events?

A: No, the reserved parking space is valid to the employee assigned to the space Monday through Friday 7am to 5pm. The space may be used as needed by Parking Services after 5pm weekdays, on weekends, holidays or for selected special events (i.e., Presidential visit, home football games, etc.). Rectors, assistant rectors and professed religious employees will continue to not be charged for reserved parking. Additionally, their spaces will continue to be reserved 24 hours per day.

Q: During what hours is the reserved parking space available just for me? What if I would like to propose other hours or days, because of my work schedule or other needs?

A: The reserved parking space will be available to the person assigned to the space Monday through Friday 6am to 4pm.  The reserved parking program is only in effect during business hours, Monday through Friday from 6am to 4pm.

Q: What do I do if someone parks in my reserved space during the time it is reserved for my use only?

A: Please call the Notre Dame Police Department at 574-631-5555 to inform them of the situation; they will advise you of how to proceed. If you need to park immediately, please park in an unreserved space that is convenient for you and please be patient while the situation is handled.

Q: May I share access to this space with another employee of the university or a student?

A: No, reserved parking spaces are non-transferrable and may not be shared with others.
