In preparation for the Rocket football season that will begin at home with a rivalry game against Bowling Green, The University of Toledo Police Department has released it schedule of parking lot closures for contests in the Glass Bowl.
Parking lot closures will begin Saturday, Sept. 15, when the UT Rockets take on the BGSU Falcons and will be in effect for all home football games to ensure parking availability for the Toledo community attending the games.
Lots 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, including the Greek Village Loop and Parks Tower Loop, will close starting at 7 a.m. on game days. Vehicles that are parked in Lot 9 on game days will be towed.
Lots 3, 4, 18 and 28 will be closed beginning at noon.
While lot closures can be an inconvenience for faculty, staff and students, Rocket football games and other campus events are an important way the University interacts with the outside community, said Sherri Kaspar, police support services manager for UT Police.
The UT Police Department has a text message and email alert program that will remind those who regularly park in Lot 9 of towing on game days. To register, sign in or create a UT Alert account here, click on “groups” and subscribe to the UT Football Lot 9 tow alert group.
In conjunction with game lot closures listed, Lots 1N, 1S and Lot 2 will be closed starting at 6 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, for the Homecoming parade and football game.
