Will university employees be required to work the full day on Aug. 30?

We anticipate some form of early staff release on Aug. 30. An official announcement should be made in early August.

On the parking maps for the football game on Aug. 30, what is meant by “exception by placard”?

Deans, vice presidents and department heads will be given the opportunity to request an exception to the posted parking maps for faculty, staff or graduate students.

Those who either teach a class, or have an essential job duty and must continue parking in the restricted lot or garage beyond the time the area must be cleared should contact their dean or department head.

For individuals for whom the dean, vice president or department head request an exception, a placard will be issued for either the assigned lot or garage, or one nearby the assigned lot or garage.

Priority for placards will be given to designees assigned to teach classes after the time posted for clearing the lot or garage.

What parking is available for the Wednesday, Aug. 29, 10pm Yell Practice?

On Aug. 29, fans can park for free starting at 8:30pm in surface lots near the stadium for Yell Practice, however, ALL vehicles must leave the parking lots by 4am Thursday, Aug. 30.

How will tailgating be affected for the Thursday, Aug. 30 game?

Visit our tailgating page for full details.

When will parking in Lot 74 return to normal on the Friday, Aug. 31 after Football Thursday?

RV’s can begin checking in to Lot 74 beginning at 3:30 Thursday afternoon and will be confined to the southern half of the lot. They will be required to leave the southern half of the lot by 10am Friday. Lot 74 permit holders will have normal access to the northern half of the lot on Friday and the southern half after 10am. Historically, on Fridays the lots are less full, so we feel there will be plenty of room to make this plan work.

Lot 74 is the only area affected by overnight parking for the game. All other lots should be cleared out by Friday morning.
