Game Day Parking Restrictions

Parking is prohibited after 6am on Saturdays of home football games in all B and C lots, Raclin Carmichael Hall,  Library Circle, Dorr Road and parking areas on the Moose Krause Drive and west of the Hesburgh Center. Vehicles left in the above listed lots will be towed at the owner's expense beginning at 6 a.m. Student parking is available in Rugby and Wilson Student lots (GU permit required), Lake lot, D Bulla lot, White Field, and at graduate residences (with appropriate permit). Student parking without special passes is prohibited in all other areas on game day. 

Four hours prior to kick off and at least two hours after the game ends, special traffic restrictions are imposed on roads near campus by University, local and state police. Regular faculty/staff and student parking assignments are not available game day. No overnight parking with a game day hang tag. Please follow directions of police. Most roads leading to campus become one-way and motorists must follow directions of police officers. Access to campus lots is restricted to a special pass during one-way traffic pattern. Motorcycles, vehicles with trailers and large trucks are prohibited in all lots on game day. RV parking on game day is allowed only from 7:45am to three hours after the game in the NDFCU lot. All lots close three hours after the game.

Snow Removal Guidelines

Special guidelines are in effect to assist Landscape Services/Athletic Fields crews with plowing of the lots. Any vehicles left in the faculty/staff lots after midnight may be towed at owner's expense to another University parking area. We ask that individuals working late-evening shifts park in the middle of the lot so curb lines can be properly cleared. All vehicles must display a valid parking permit.

Resident Assistants may receive notice to move student vehicles to a specific lot so other lots may be plowed; students will have until the designated time given in the notice to move their vehicle to a specified area. All vehicles must be removed from the designated temporary lot within 24 hours or whenever normal assigned lots are clear.

In some lots, spaces along curb-lines may be restricted to parking for snow removal. Signs will be posted and vehicles parked in these spaces may be towed at the owner’s expense. Shovels will be available at Landscape Services and Security for those who can not wait for lots to be cleared. 

We ask that you do not park on end caps (end of rows, or driving lane in lot).
