Important information about game day parking for students

We know you may have questions about game-day impacts to parking. Regular CSU parking permits purchased for the 2017-2018 year are not valid for the six Saturdays that home CSU football games will be held on campus this fall: Aug. 26, Sept. 9, Oct. 14, Oct. 28, Nov. 11, and Nov. 18. All CSU parking inventory including street and metered spaces will be reserved and specially permitted for game attendance parking only and other university allocation (e.g., ADA parking; faculty, staff and students whose jobs require them to be on campus on game days, and student residence hall repark). Students who live off campus who wish to attend the game and park on campus must purchase a single game or season pass parking permit through Athletics (http://col.st/ISdGs). All residence hall students with a current CSU parking permit do not have to obtain a special game day permit, but are required to park in specific lots reserved for them on the six Saturdays a year when the Rams play at the on-campus stadium. More information about where residence hall students should park is available at http://col.st/n2QC5 and a map is available at http://col.st/c5ZUH. More information about the game-day experience is at http://col.st/ISdGs. On all remaining Saturdays and Sundays, parking on campus is open to the public without a required permit from Parking and Transportation Services or CSU Athletics.
