Under normal circumstances, a hanging tag is required to park anywhere on campus property. Tags are issued by Police & Security to registered vehicles and visitors at the Police & Security window at the Recitation Hall Annex. During athletic events this restriction is relaxed, though all posted restrictions and signs are still in effect. There is no paid parking anywhere on campus or at any athletic facility.
Parking behind the HPER Center itself is restricted at all times to faculty, staff, media and visiting team vehicles.
