Parking Services Event Requests
A department or registered student organization (RSO) hosting an event is responsible for informing their guests of the University's parking requirements or specific parking arrangements made for their event. To obtain event parking pricing the host must have at least 15 visitors (not UD affiliated). If a department or RSO chooses to pre-purchase parking they should read the information below and submit the event request form. Otherwise, visitors can use a pay lot, meter, or purchase a day pass.
Events held on central campus will be instructed to use a parking garage or the Visitors Center lot. Departments or RSOs receive a discount when purchasing validation coupons at 1.50 per hour or part thereof with a daily max. of $7.50 . Special pricing may be available for events with more than 50 attendees by contacting the office.
Events not held on central campus (Laird, East campus, South campus, etc.) can request the use of individual parking lots for an event. Requests will be subject to approval based on area and use. Departments or RSOs can obtain event passes at $1.50 each. These passes would be valid in a specific lot for a specific day. Event passes are only valid for visitors. Students and staff working on campus must purchase parking. In the case of large events, a department or RSO can purchase the entire lot for $.25 per space. The lot must be purchased in its entirety. Parking Services can provide quotes by lot upon request.
To request event parking, complete and submit the Event Request form. A representative will contact you. We can assist you with determining the best option for your event based on the information you provide.
