Penn State Athletics hosting football traffic and parking town hall meetings

January 23, 2019

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — In an effort to address traffic and parking challenges on football game day, Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics announced last November several changes for traffic and parking for the 2019 season. These changes are being implemented after evaluation of the operation by the University and an external consultant.

Season ticket holders have been invited to hear from, and ask questions of, Penn State Athletics, University Police, and the consultant (SP+) about the traffic and parking changes at town hall meetings on Saturday, Jan. 26, and Friday, Feb. 1, in-between/before home athletic events on both days.

Please note that all available spaces for Saturday Jan. 26 town hall are full, though season ticket holders interested in attending the Feb. 1 town hall can RSVP by calling 1-800-NITTANY during regular business hours.

The meetings will be held in the Beaver Stadium media room as follows:

Saturday, Jan. 26

1:30 to 2:30 p.m. — Preferred/Reserved Season Parking holders

2:35 to 3:35 p.m. — General Season Parking holders (formerly Yellow)

Friday, Feb. 1

4 to 5 p.m. — Preferred/Reserved Season Parking holders

5:05 to 6:05 p.m. — General Season Parking holders (formerly Yellow)

The most significant traffic and parking changes will include the creation of four traffic zones and designating game day parking for general parking lots. The names or numbers of some parking lots have changed for the 2019 season. Penn State will continue to offer three tiers of parking: Reserved, Preferred and General.

Starting this season, fans will be required to enter the game day traffic pattern, and travel to their specific Beaver Stadium lot, from one of four traffic zones that have been created (North, South, East and West). All parking permits will have zone and lot specific driving direction instructions.
