Football Practice Facility

Construction Parking Impacts

Football Practice Facility

Construction for the Football Practice Facility began in February 2015.

As a result of the first phase of construction, approximately 200 spaces in the Commonwealth Stadium East Blue Lot were blocked. Phase 2 is scheduled to begin at the conclusion of the 2015 spring semester; at that time, the remainder of the lot will permanently close, removing the Blue Lot from the parking inventory.

Football Practice Fields - Overview
Football Practice Fields - Parking Loss Phasing

The Blue Lot is designated as a K Lot, meaning that students and employees with valid K, Commuter, Residential or Employee permits may park in this area.

At this time, the stadium areas are not at capacity. Based on recent parking lot capacity counts, the options outlined below are expected to adequately absorb parking demand. However, Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) is working in tandem with the Administration to carefully evaluate all potential parking areas and to strategically mitigate these losses.

Students who currently park in the impacted areas may park in any other K Lots. This includes the Stadium West Blue Lot, the Stadium Red Lot, the Greg Page Overflow Lot and the Soccer/Softball Complex Lots.

Employees who utilize the impacted lots may also park in any other K Lot listed above, as well as any designated E lot. E lots in the vicinity include the Orange Lot, at the corner of University and Alumni Drives, and the Green Lot, adjacent to the Oswald Building.

PTS has been actively working on several other mitigation efforts to maximize efficiencies of the Orange Lot.
