Parking areas 6 and 10 will close at 9 p.m. the day before games. Overnight parking is not permitted. Fans with a parking area 6 or 10 football parking pass will be admitted starting at 6 a.m. game day.

Parking areas 5 and 9, along with the Greek Village loop and Parks Tower loop, will close starting at 5 a.m. on game day. Any cars remaining in the parking area 9 on game day will be towed starting at 5 a.m.

Parking areas 3, 4, 18 and 28 will close at 9 a.m.

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, according to UT Police Chief Jeff Newton.

All UT faculty, staff and students receive free general admission parking by presenting a valid Rocket ID to the parking attendant on game day. General admission parking areas are 1, 2, 12, 13, 17, 19, 20, and the east and west parking garages.
