Special event parking is the arrangement of parking for activities that do not occur on a daily basis. Special parking arrangements will be made when a request is received in writing by noon on the Friday before the event is to occur. Events scheduled after the cut-off on Friday will be subject to a late fee and/or other application.

Arrangements can be made for both medical center and academic areas. Event parking options for each of these areas is detailed below. Fees are dependent on the combination of services needed for the event. For example, to not ticket a gated lot, an hourly fee is charged because an attendant is required at the gate. If event parking is in a non-gated lot, the fee is a flat rate. An internal requisition must be sent to Parking & Transportation Services prior to the event to pay for the services.

Academic Area

Special event parking options depend upon the size of the group:

  • For smaller functions (
  • For larger functions, parking can be requested in a non-gated lot for a $65.00 flat fee. with the exception of Lot 15A, 12th Street Deck, and 16th Street Deck. Their cost is as follows: 15A = $75.00 and 12th and 16th Street decks = $105.00. Vehicles without permits will not be ticketed in this lot during the event,
  • Parking for larger functions can also be requested in a gated lot. An attendant is required to raise gate to admit event participants in congested areas. The fee for an attendant is $25.00 per hour, minimum two hour charge during office hours plus $3/ vehicle from 7:30 AM - 4:30 PM, $50/hr before 7:00 AM and after 4:30 PM. The gate on a facility can NOT be raised during normal business hours.

Due to the activity in various parking lots, parking for special events in the academic area is limited to the following lots Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. during the fall/winter/spring school terms:

  • Lot 15C (6th Avenue South and 13th Street)
  • Lot 15D (Across from the Alys Stephens Center)

 Parking can be accommodated in other lots on a case-by-case basis for Fridays, off-peak times, summer semester and the time between school semesters.


Medical Center Area

All lots are limited in space, therefore parking arrangements are restricted to the 10th Avenue Deck (Deck 10A), 6th Avenue Deck (Deck 6A), 9th Avenue Deck (D9A), and University Boulevard Deck (Deck 8). The department requesting parking for Decks 10A, D6A, D9A, or Deck 8 must provide Transportation Services an example of the pass given to event participants or register their event for a special validation (see "Department" for details). Each validation will be collected by the cashier or machine and the department will be billed at the end of the month based on the number of validations. Departments requesting parking in Deck 10A will be charged a per-hour rate to raise the gate. Parking requests for other medical center lots will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
