Whether you’re going to a conference, football game or any special event, you’ll typically find plenty of special event parking.

Special Event Parking

North Campus

Alumni Arena, Center for the Arts and UB Stadium

There are many parking lots immediately adjacent to Alumni Arena, the Center for the Arts and UB Stadium. Event parking, which is generally limited to these lots, is typically available and posted for most cultural and athletic events after 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and all day on weekends. Parking attendants may be available to assist with reserved and special permit parking for most events. A nominal fee may apply.

Service Advisories

Check service advisories for lot changes/restrictions due to special events or construction. View service advisories.

For Closer Parking Use Coventry Entrance

Use the Coventry Entrance (off of Millersport Highway) for the most direct access to events at Alumni Arena, the Center for the Arts and UB Stadium.

To Avoid Traffic Use Hamilton Entrance

To avoid most traffic after events, park in Furnas Lot, Jarvis A + B Lots, or Ketter Lot. To access these lots, enter campus from Rensch Road (off of Sweet Home Road), or use the Hamilton Entrance (off the John James Audubon Parkway). Please note that it is a short walk (approximately 7-9 minutes) from these lots to Alumni Arena, the Center for the Arts and UB Stadium.

To Park Your RV Parking for Football

RV parking on football game days is available along the curbs of the Special Event Lot on the North Campus and on the west side of Coventry Road. All other RV parking will be accommodated in available lots. Please be considerate and try to park within one or two parking spaces.

Accessibility/Special Needs Accommodations

Parking for persons with disabilities is available in the Slee B Lot during most events. You may access this lot via Coventry Road, which is off of Augspurger Road. The Coventry (front) entrance of Alumni Arena or the Center for the Arts is the preferable entry point for guests with special needs.
