Construction changes football parking

Football game-day parking will be affected by construction to change all the gravel parking lots east of Doyt Perry Stadium into grass parking by spring 2011. The project is part of the University’s ongoing campus beautification efforts.

Fans will now park in the newly paved lots along Alumni Drive, the grass areas southwest of Whittaker Track, a portion of the Intramural Fields, areas to the north of Cochrane Soccer Field and campus parking lots 10 (Ice Arena) and 18 (Perry Field House). The grass area to the south of the golf course hill will also be under construction for the installation of new irrigation.

Season-ticket holders with season-ticket parking passes will continue to park in the area behind the scoreboard. Falcon Club members still have the opportunity to purchase parking passes for Lot L (Sebo Athletic Center Lot) and the grass area north of Cochrane Soccer Field.

Parking remains $5 for cars, $10 for buses and $15 for motor homes.

A courtesy cart is available to help those with mobility issues. The cart is available two hours before the game until after the conclusion of the game. Any guest-relations staff member, parking attendant or staff person with a radio can call to dispatch the cart.

Falcon Tailgate Park will move to the southwest side of the stadium to provide fans with quick access to Tent City from the new parking areas.

For more parking information, contact Ben Spence, operations and events coordinator, at 2-7055 or

For the past eight seasons, the Falcon Marching Band has consistently grown in numbers. Last year, the band featured a record-setting 240 members. Saturday (Sept. 18), that number will be shattered when 270 musicians take the field at Doyt Perry Stadium for the first home football game of the season.

The Falcon Marching Band is the largest student organization on campus and performs at all home football games and various other University functions. It often travels to various away games as well, and has played at professional football games in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Detroit.

Composed of students from all colleges of the University, the band is open by audition to students of all class levels and all majors.
