Special Events Parking

Individuals or departments planning to conduct short courses, workshops, conferences, or special events, to which persons from off campus will be invited, should inform the Office of Parking and Transportation as soon as possible, preferably at least one week in advance of the event. Please inform them of the anticipated attendance, duration of the event, and special parking or traffic management requirements.

Only the Office of Parking and Transportation is authorized to commit or approve the use or closure of University parking facilities. The approval of the Office of Parking and Transportation is required for any special event that will cause the disruption or re-routing of regular traffic flow.

Illinois State University regularly hosts major statewide athletic tournaments, conventions, and concerts on campus. During these events, special parking arrangements will affect specific parking areas. The Office of Parking and Transportation will attempt to notify areas of campus affected by these events. During Special Events held at the Bone Student center pay lot or the South University Street garage pay lot, all users will be required to pay the entrance fee, including vehicles displaying an Illinois State University parking permit or an ADA plate or placard.
