Research Park Football Parking Map

Public Parking

Parking on Main Campus for all stadium events costs $20. Parking at the Research Park costs $10.

Parking lots open for football games four hours before kick-off. As you enter campus, attendants and police will direct you.

Campus parking is limited. Please arrive an hour before kickoff to ensure space availability.

Allow yourself extra travel time as traffic may be heavy.

When a football game ends, 45 minutes of heavy outgoing traffic takes precedence over gaining access to main campus.

CU Students, Faculty, and Staff Parking

Permit holders

UC Boulder parking permits will be honored in their assigned lot during football games based on space availability. (Some exceptions exist; see below for details.) Permit holders displaced from their lots will be directed to alternate campus parking locations.

Parking permit holders (including X permit holders) for all lots near Folsom Stadium (lots 169, 360, 365, 378, 380, 386, 390, 391, 394, 396, 420, 436/494 North & East) will be directed to alternate campus parking locations all day on football game days.

Campus Department Business permits, Vendor permits, Worksite permits and Emergency permits are NOT honored for personal parking during football games.

If you do not have a parking permit, please go to the public parking areas described above.

Carpool

Share the ride with other CU staff, faculty and students. Visit 36commutingsolutions.com for more information.
 

After the game

Due to the high-volume of traffic in the first 60 minutes after a game, we advise you to avoid driving into campus then.

Permit holders who must drive into campus during post game traffic are asked to enter at Regent Drive from NORTHBOUND Broadway. Expect to find a barricade. You will be admitted if you show the police or parking attendant your UC Boulder parking permit, and tell them that you are seeking access to your residence hall or work site. Please follow their directions.

ADA Accessible Parking

Parking for persons with disabilities is available at the Euclid AutoPark (18th and Euclid Streets).

A wheelchair-accessible shuttle transports ticket holders with disabilities between Euclid AutoPark and Folsom Stadium continuously for two hours before and for one hour after the game.

Vehicles over 6 feet 9 inches tall or 8 feet wide may park on the top level of the Euclid AutoPark. If additional accessible parking arrangements are needed to accommodate fans in oversized vehicles, please call PTS’ Events Parking section at 303-492-7384.

Vehicles not displaying UC Boulder parking permits will be charged $20 per parking space.

Athletic Donor Parking

Folsom Field policies, maps, donor parking, and more are provided under 'Fans' on the CU Athletic Department website.

RV Parking
