Event Parking

Parking Services can assist customers in preparing for special events that are held on campus. We offer reserved parking, attendants who can welcome your guests, various message boards, and other useful services to assist you with a successful event. Please fill out and submit the Special Event Parking Form at least five (5) business days, but preferably as soon as possible, before the scheduled date of your event.


Type of Organization Price Per Ticket*
University Affiliated Organization $5.00
University Affiliated Organization w/remote cashier $6.00
 Non-University Affiliated Organization $6.00

* Plus any applicable taxes

An additional charge may be applied for reservations made with less than five (5) days’ notice prior to requested event. (Note: Some departments find it useful to purchase pre-paid tickets in bulk so that they have them on hand for guests and visitors throughout the year.

Some events and/or functions require parking enforcement personnel to properly manage the event, or require labor hours and material in preparation for the event. If you wish to secure an attendant, the cost is as follows:

On-Site Event Supervisors Parking Attendants Events
With 5 Days’ Notice $30 per hour $25 per hour No Fee
Less than 5 Days’ Notice $40 per hour $35 per hour $15 per event

When organizations wish to have access to parking other than the Red Hawk Garage, or they wish to have their event on a parking lot, the following rates apply:

Event Parking Policies

Parking Services may close/block off these lots, spaces, areas, or garages as reserved for those attending a special event. Parking alternatives will be made available for displaced permit holders, based on permit type, and with no additional compensation to the displaced persons. However, if Parking Services determines that an event may cause an unacceptable disruption to campus operations; it may reject an event request.

Any event which impacts parking must be coordinated with Parking Services. Parking arrangements for chartered buses and large vehicles that will impact traffic must also be coordinated with Parking Services and University Police.

Parking Services may take one or more of the following steps to inform permit holders of special event parking policies:

  • Information mailed or e-mailed to all permit holders with assigned lots or garages affected by special event parking.
  • Informational signs posted at the entrances to lots reserved for athletic and other special events.
