Impact on University Hall and John Paul Jones Arena Parking Lots

Some John Paul Jones (JPJ) Arena events will require permit holders to vacate the lots surrounding University Hall (U-Hall) and the JPJ Arena by a posted time. Permit holders who are unable to vacate by the posted time should park at the Emmet/Ivy Parking Garage. Please note that the Emmet/Ivy Garage gates will close at 1:00 AM following the event. Vehicles not able to vacate the lots by the posted time will be subject to ticketing and towing.

Generally, permit holders will be required to vacate the lots based on the following, unless otherwise noted on the schedule below:

  • John Paul Jones Arena Surface Lot and Garage: 3 hours prior to event start time (Monday-Sunday)
  • University Hall East, West and Cage Lots: No earlier than 5:30PM (Monday-Friday), 3 hours prior to event start time (Saturday and Sunday)

If your work schedule, on event dates, is such that you are unable to exit the Emmet/Ivy Garage by 1:00am, or if you drive an "over-sized" vehicle that cannot access the Emmet/Ivy Garage, please call 434-924-5147 prior to the event date for alternative parking accommodations.
