The most convenient or close-in parking is referred to as "event parking." Event parking is only available during the academic year on weekdays beginning at 5:00 p.m. and on weekends. Event parking is also available during the summer quarter. Event parking is contingent on parking space availability and is available on a limited basis due to the costs that will be incurred by the event host, the logistics that must be handled by the event host and Parking and Commuter Services, and the ability of Parking and Commuter Services to provide the service.

Event Parking Management Plan
