For faculty and staff needing access to campus for academic purposes, home lot permits will not be accommodated on game days. However, with their valid SU parking permit, parking will be provided in the University Avenue and Booth garages on a space-available basis.
NOTE: Both garages will close two and a half hours after the event ends. If your parking needs are not met because of this, please contact Parking and Transit Services at 315.443.4652.
Handicapped access for academic purposes will be provided in the lot designated on the face of the permit if space is available. If no spaces are available, permit holders will be directed to another location.
If you are attending a game on any of the above noted dates, your regular parking permit will be honored at the Skytop Park and Ride system. If you have a handicapped or medical permit, you may park in the Skytop lot and ride the shuttle bus free of charge to Gate A.
Parking and Transit Services asks for your support of these procedures so that they may provide academic access for all of the University community. If you have any questions or need to coordinate additional academic access, please contact Dee Bailey at 315.443.5319 or Amy Maxwell at 315.443.4652.
