Gameday Parking FAQ

YES.

If I have to move my vehicle, where can I park?
The following lots will be available for anyone to park and will not be monitored over the weekend. All vehicles must be moved back to their regular assigned spaces by 6 a.m. Monday morning or be subject to towing by Transportation and Parking Services.

Several other housing lots, including W06 off of Lumpkin Street near Hill Hall, W08 off of Church Street, W11 behind Oglethorpe House and E06 and E05 lots near East Campus Village will also be free campus parking on home football game days. This means if you move your vehicle, you not be able to return to that lot until several hours after the game has ended.

Will there be road closures following the games?
Yes. Residents in East Campus Village, University Village Housing and Building 1516 should be aware that traffic control measures on College Station Road, East Campus Road, River Road, Southview Street and Agriculture Drive will make access into these areas impossible for an estimated two hours after the end of each football game. These roads will be one-way only outbound from the stadium. Call the UGA Police at 706-542-2200 at any time if emergency access is necessary. Please plan accordingly.

When can I return to my permitted parking lot?
Following the conclusion of each home game, you may return to your permitted lot as space allows. All vehicles must be moved back to their regular assigned spaces by 6 a.m. Monday morning or be subject to towing by Parking Services.
