Special Event Parking

A pay-on-entry fee is charged during special event parking. The fee is $9 for single-day events, or $7 for events that occur over multiple days.

Parking Services designates special event parking when a large number of people are expected to exit a parking garage or lot at the same time. Cash, parking voucher (coupon), Visa or MasterCard are accepted. Our staff will collect payment from each vehicle as it enters the garage, and each vehicle will be issued a special event parking ticket. The ticket will be valid until 6:00 am the following day. If you park beyond the time limit, you will be required to make an additional payment when exiting.
