Parking Information

Pre-paid paved parking on campus is SOLD OUT.

If you’re planning to enjoy Eclipse Day at Saluki Stadium or have paid for a parking pass for Monday, we encourage you to arrive early if you want to park near the stadium. Parking opens at 6 a.m. Gates for the stadium show open at 11 a.m.

Additionally, you can visit the nearby Banterra Center and take in the Crossroads Art and Craft Fair and the Crossroads Astronomy, Science, and Technology Expo, which start at 9 a.m. If stadium parking fills up, people with passes will be directed to overflow lots and take a shuttle to the stadium or have the opportunity to walk.

Parking is available for those who purchased pre-paid passes. However, parking for vehicles that have not pre-paid for a pass (and wish to pay on-site) is limited. Employees and students who already have parking decals can park where their decals allow, with the exception of marked lots near the stadium and Banterra Center, the Communications Building, and Lesar Law Building.

For SIU employees and students:

 On April 8, most employees and students can park where they normally do or where their parking permit allows, except for designated lots near Saluki Stadium, Banterra Center, the Communications Building, and Lesar Law Building as listed above.
