  • Parking Updates for September 30th

    September 15, 2016

    University of Washington

    The University will host Stanford for a Husky football game at Husky Stadium on September 30th. As many as 70,000 fans will come to campus for the Friday evening game which will pose some transportation challenges.

    On game day Friday, September 30, lots E1, E2, E3, E4, E6, E8, E9, E12, E17, E18 and E19 will be closed to normal daily, carpool and other permit parking at 6am.

    UW Transportation Services is encouraging everyone to consider making a change for the day that will keep vehicles away from campus— bike, take a bus or light rail, walk, or carpool. If you can make a change for the day, TAKE A PLEDGE here: When you pledge to try a different transportation mode on Friday, September 30th you’ll be entered in a drawing to win great prizes including tickets for individual basketball, football, baseball and softball games; or a pair of season tickets for the 2017 Husky Football season.

    For more information, visit or contact UW Transportation Services at 206-685-1553.
