Weekend Parking

On weekends (except for home football game Saturdays) the gates to the B1 Lot south of the football stadium are lifted and the public is allowed to park there free of charge.

Please note that both Mendoza College of Business and DeBartolo Hall are usually locked on the weekends, so you will have to walk around their west side (quadrangle side) to get to the Snite Museum of Art
