University Parking Saturday with a Spring football game at the TCF stadium
For parking on Saturday, the $8 event rate will be posted early in the morning (prior to 8am) for the Spring Football Game. Parking & Transportation Services expect that many of the attendees for football will be parking in the surface lots over by the stadium for tailgating. If any conference attendees are staff or faculty who have a parking contract with the U of M, they are able to use their reciprocal parking privileges at the University Ave. Ramp to park at no additional cost. It is actually cheaper for conference attendees to park in the University Ave. Ramp for the $8 event rate, as opposed to the hourly rate (which would be $11 per car from 8am-2pm).
