Please consider using an alternative to driving alone to get to any campus event.Traffic flow after Husky footballs games is restricted as shown on the map at right. This map shows football game day bus parking/direction of travel. Vehicles cannot exit parking lots near the stadium after the game until pedestrian traffic clears.

Tyee ParkingSpecial Tyee parking permits are distributed by the Intercollegiate Athletic Department (ICA) approximately two weeks prior to the opening game. Space in the Tyee assigned lot is available on a first-come, first-served basis. If your lot is full when you arrive, you will be directed to an alternate parking location. Permits must be displayed from the rearview mirror or easily viewed from the dash at ALL TIMES - failure to display your parking permit during the game may result in a citation, towing or denial of entrance into Tyee parking areas.
Please be aware that E11, E11DS/CS, E12 & E12M Tyee Permits MUST BE presented to Commuter Services staff for game day validation. Once permits have been validated, they may NOT be used for re-entry. Special Tyee parking permits cannot be replaced if lost or stolen, so please keep permit/pass in a safe place. If you have any questions, call the ICA Development Fund Office at 206-543-2234.
Tailgate PartiesTailgate parties are prohibited in the S1 parking lot, the Triangle Garage and the Central Plaza Garage. When tailgating, use minimal amount of space and ensure that your party does not infringe on other Husky fans parking spaces.
Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, parking spaces cannot be saved for other family or friends wanting to tailgate together. Please plan ahead and make every attempt to arrive at the same time with your family or friends to ensure that you tailgate together.
