Two Purdue parking garages will be reserved for football game-day parking

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The University Street and Northwestern Avenue parking garages on Purdue’s campus will again be open to the public on home football game days but will require the purchase of a special, game-day parking pass.

These passes are $10 per game and are available for purchase in advance online at or at garage entrances on game day (cash only).

After online purchase, the parking pass must be printed and placed on the front dash of the vehicle prior to entering the parking garage.

On game days, faculty and staff who have numbered, reserved parking spaces in those garages will be allowed entrance to the garages. All other regular Purdue parking permit holders will need to buy game-day parking passes if entering the garages prior to kickoff. Following the same practice as last year, a special admittance list will not be used this year.

Departments may purchase passes for faculty or staff by contacting Parking Facilities prior to noon on the Friday before game day.

The Northwestern garage is located at 504 Northwestern Ave., and the University garage at 201 N. University St.

The game-day parking procedures will be in place for all home football contests this season except the Sept. 8 meeting against Ohio University, which is on a Friday. For that game, usual Purdue parking garage permit rules will apply during the day, and these two garages will become event parking with a $10 cash-only fee between 6-8 p.m.

Purdue opens the season Sept. 2 against the University of Louisville at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Boilermakers will play six games in Ross-Ade Stadium.
