Virginia Cavaliers host Boise State Broncos at Scott Stadium

September 25, 2015


Event Parking for Football Game Ticket Holders

Fans attending the event should visit the Virginia Athletics Website for more information.

Reserved and first-come, first-served parking options normally available for football parkers will not open until 5:30PM.

The University is preparing for a football game with Boise State on Friday, September 25th, 2015, at Scott Stadium beginning at 8:00 p.m. 

There are significant impacts of hosting a large event on a weeknight. However, the University is committed to maintaining a regular schedule for all university and health system activities.  No classes will be cancelled, and patient care services will be provided as usual.  A team is working hard to mitigate the game’s impact on students, patients, employee work schedules, traffic, and parking. We appreciate your willingness to work with us to help manage this event.

The Department of Parking and Transportation will be working with permit holders and University Transit Service riders to provide information regarding traffic impacts and alternative parking arrangements. Please review the information below that applies to specific permit holders and virtually all users of the University Transit Service (UTS). Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
