Special Events

Attending an event?

If you plan to attend a large event on campus that’s scheduled during business hours (8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday), the event sponsor has likely informed Parking Services. Please contact our office to find the parking area closest to your event. Knowing your event location can save you time, and sometimes money.

Parking fees are charged for all on-campus special events. These include basketball games, swimming tournaments, theatre productions, high school sporting events, parties and more. Special parking arrangements should be arranged through Parking Services. Costs will be covered by the event organizer or patrons.

Planning an event?

Parking Services can help if you are planning to host an event on campus. Contact Parking Services if you are expecting 10 or more vehicles or if you require parking for oversized vehicles, such as trailers or cube vans, in areas not designated to accommodate them.

Events may disrupt regular parking and traffic patterns.

Event patrons should allow themselves extra time to park and get to their event on time. Given the University functions 24 hours a day, event parking and campus permit holders must often be accommodated simultaneously. While event parking plans are in effect, parking permits are honoured in assigned lots or in the nearest lot with space available. In rare cases (basketball games, concerts), parking spaces for event attendees and permit holders may be filled.
