Wednesday November 6, 2013Parking Details for Homecoming Friday Announced
With a full slate of Homecoming events on campus this Friday, along with men’s and women’s basketball games, fans are encouraged to plan ahead for parking.
At 1 p.m., the O’Connell Center parking lot will open for men’s basketball and Gator Growl pass holders and the O’Connell Center garage will open to the general public until it is full. Fans arriving before 2 p.m. are encouraged to come from the west and the south, as parade traffic will be clearing the area.
Also at 1 p.m., the Event Day Shuttle will begin running from Garage IX, located on the south side of Archer Road at Gale Lemerand Drive, and dropping off at Gate 2 of the O’Connell Center. This shuttle will operate continuously until 30 minutes after the conclusion of Gator Growl. Parking will also be available at James G. Pressly Stadium (track/soccer), Fraternity Row and behind Tolbert.
Those arriving for the women’s basketball game or Gator Growl without parking passes may park in Garage IX and ride the Event Day Shuttle or in the O’Connell Center garage, space-permitting.
