Special Parking, Traffic Guidelines for WVU Football Game
Sept. 5, 2007
On Thursday September 13, 2007 at 7:45 p.m., the University of Maryland football team will play West Virginia at Chevy Chase Field at Byrd Stadium.
We anticipate a significant increase in traffic beginning 3 p.m. and continuing through the beginning of the game. The number of vehicles on campus for our daily University activities and this evening game may exceed our inventory of parking spaces. Some members of our community may experience some inconvenience; however, we are endeavoring to accommodate all vehicles that absolutely must be parked on campus that day.
IMPORTANT: The Department of Public Safety will restrict access to campus beginning at 4 p.m. on this day. Any vehicle without a permit will not be allowed on campus. FANS ATTENDING THE FOOTBALL GAME SHOULD ARRIVE ON CAMPUS AFTER 5 P.M.
Faculty/staff and students with classes or other documented academic commitments after 4 p.m. on this day, who do not possess a campus permit, may call the Department of Transportation Services at (301) 314-PARK to make arrangements. The Department of Transportation Services will provide those faculty/staff and students with classes or other documented academic commitments after 4 p.m. on this day, who do not possess a campus permit, a one-day, temporary surface lot permit for Thursday, September 13, 2007.
Permits will be available at the Department of Transportation Services located in Regents Drive Garage beginning Tuesday, September 4 through Wednesday, September 12. Office hours are Monday-Friday, 8:15 a.m. - 4 p.m. Documentation will be required and includes a UID, a printed schedule of classes or a letter from an academic advisor or professor. Documentation must be presented to staff at the main lobby desk. Don't delay! Pick up your permit as soon as distribution begins.
NOTE: Please check with your academic department first as they may have already requested permits for you.
Those permit holders coming to the University after 4 p.m. must display their permit to officers to access campus and may park in Regents Drive Garage by displaying their current, valid permit. Any campus permit holder who must remain at the University beyond 4 p.m. for class or other academic commitments must move their vehicle to Regents Drive Garage by 4 p.m.
