UA vs. Utah Football Game Will Affect Weekend Parking
On Saturday morning, some students and employees will be required to park in alternate spots because of preparations for the football game against Utah.
The assigned alternate parking will ensure that these permit holders know where to park on game day and can make any adjustments necessary in order to navigate to the alternate parking location. Permit holders that are assigned an alternate parking location for game day have been sent an email from Parking and Transportation Services indicating the temporary parking assignment.
By 7 a.m. on Oct. 19, permit holders who park in the Cherry Avenue parking garage or south of Sixth Street and east of Mountain Avenue and in lots 4052, 4056, 4057, 4144, 6090, 6092, 6093, 6097 or 6098 will need to relocate to the following garages: Sixth Street, Highland Avenue, Main Gate, Park Avenue or Tyndall Avenue.
Affected permit holders also can park in Zone 1 lots north of Speedway Boulevard and in south of Sixth Street lots located west of Mountain Avenue. Employees should remember to display their current permit in their vehicle when parking.
If relocating their vehicles to a garage on Friday, employees should:
- Pull a ticket to enter the aforementioned garages and park their vehicles.
- Be sure to display their current permit.
- Visit the cashier booth and provide their name and permit number.
- Upon verification of the permit number, the cashier will provide a swipe pass to enter and exit the garage that can be used throughout the day.
Overnight parking in the garages and surface lots will be permitted as long as the current permit is displayed.
When relocating to a garage on game day, employees can display their permit to the fee collector located at the garage entrance to enter.
Park, Main Gate, Highland and Tyndall garages will be available for limited visitor parking.
The football game kicks off at 7 p.m. Permit holders may park in their normal locations two hours after the football game ends, and have until 7 a.m. on Monday to return to their assigned spots.
If alternative game day parking instructions are not followed, permit holders run the risk of having their vehicles cited and towed as the designated areas are reserved for game day attendees by the Intercollegiate Athletics Department.
"This event brings a great deal of excitement to our campus and positive exposure to the University and the Tucson community," said Mark Napier, associate director for PTS. "Arizona Athletics are important to the University, bringing us a national audience and a chance to showcase our beautiful campus."
