Weekends: Parking is open and free on weekends at any lot, around the loop and at the meters.
If you will be on campus on Saturday, Oct. 14, we suggest parking in The Commons Garage as it is the most accessible location to the majority of Homecoming events.
Weekdays: Visitor parking is available at “Pay to Park” spaces. Visitors pay at the pay station and must enter the license plate of the vehicle into the kiosk. No receipt will be issued. Pay Stations for visitor “Pay to Park” spaces are ADA compliant and visitors with a disabled plate/placard will need to pay when parking in these areas. Visitor parking is enforced Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
If I didn’t purchase tickets for registration fee-based events, can I purchase tickets on-site?
We strongly encourage you to purchase your tickets in advance. Please note that we prefer payment via credit card (American Express, Visa, Mastercard).
For the 5K and Family Fun Run, pre-registration for the run will end on Thursday, October 12 at midnight. Onsite registration will be available until the event capacity is reached (150 participants).
I registered for other events without a registration fee. What information should I know?
We ask for pre-registration in order to anticipate the number of event attendees and order catering accordingly. You should proceed to the event location and check-in.

The carnival will be open from noon – 10 p.m. on Erickson Field. Unlimited ride wristbands are available for $10 cash-only purchase (kids 5 and under ride free).
