Account For Traffic & Parking Changes On Campus During Crazy Sports Weekend

Penn State Athletics is encouraging sports fans to leave extra time for parking when attending events this weekend. A whopping 16 Nittany Lion teams are playing at home beginning Friday at 4 p.m. Many lots are available for parking permit holders and those without permits to use for different events, including the Jordan East lot.

Here’s the parking guidelines for each event:

Friday, February 2:

Faculty, Staff and Students: Penn State parking permit holders will be able to park for free in the Jordan East and Stadium West lots, and East Parking Deck for events on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Fans with these permits can also park for free in the Nittany Parking Deck for events on Friday and Saturday.
