Parking

Parking will be free for inaugural events on Thursday and Friday, October 14 and 15. Please be sure to tell the gate attendant what event(s) you are attending, and be sure you receive a parking pass for your vehicle.

On Friday morning, the University Parking Center is recommended for all guests (enter off of 35th Street west of Grand Avenue). Trams to campus will depart the Parking Center every 5-10 minutes before and after the ceremony on Friday, October 15.

Please plan to arrive early to secure a parking space. We expect 10,000 guests on campus, and classes are not canceled on Inauguration Day.
