Single Game Permits

We strongly encourage all attendees to purchase game day parking permits in advance. There are 23 parking lots and 2 parking garages across campus that are available for football fans who purchased parking permits in advance.  Fans who arrive on campus on game day without a parking permit will only be able to purchase parking at available street-side meters or in Terrapin Trail Garage for $20 (where grilling and open fires are prohibited). The cost of a single game permit online is $17 and may only be purchased using credit/debit.

Review the Football Parking Map for parking areas that are available for
pre-purchase. When you’re ready, click below to purchase your permit.
