For visiting teams and officials, parking passes will have either been sent to you by the team coach or they will have them waiting for you at the event. All visiting teams and officials must have a parking permit. All others must pay for parking permits. If you park in either the West or East Remote lots, you will need a parking permit between the hours of 7:30am-5pm, Monday - Friday. For permit requirements in other campus lots, please refer to this map. If you need to purchase a permit, please visit the TAPS Sales Office, located in the H Barn on the lower campus, from 7:00am–5:00pm, Monday through Friday or the Main Entrance Kiosk located near the main entrance of campus from Bay Street, between the hours of 7:00am–1:00pm, Monday through Friday. Most campus lots that are enforced outside of these hours also feature parking meters and pay stations. Click here for additional information.
For more information about parking pass rates, parking on campus, and transportation on campus please visit the Transportation & Parking Services website.
For events taking place on the East side of campus (the main venue for Tennis, Soccer, and Swimming), please park at the East Remote lot. Shuttles make regular stops there and it is a short walk up to the East athletics facilities, including the East Field House, soccer fields, East tennis courts, and swimming pool.

2) The West Remote parking lot (Lot 127).
