EAST LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan State University campus is gearing up for the first home football game of the season, a Sept. 2 night game in which the Spartans take on the Youngstown State University Penguins.
Because kickoff for the Friday night contest is at 7:30, the campus will have to make some pre-game adjustments, including closing several parking lots and providing the opportunity for supervisors to implement flexible work schedules for some employees.
Information for football game attendees and tailgaters:
*Campus parking lots will be opened for game-related parking at 3:30 p.m. No game- or tailgate-related parking will be available prior to this time.
*On-campus public game-day parking will be available for $20 at Munn Field (alcohol-free site).
*The cost for lots north of the railroad tracks will be $15.
*The cost for lots south of the railroad tracks will be $10.
Information for faculty, staff and students:
The following parking lots will be closed beginning 5 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 1 until 3:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 2, when they will be opened for those holding passes to those lots:
*Lot A (62E) located on the north side of IM Sports West and Spartan Stadium
*Lot C (61) located on the west side of the stadium
*Lot T (79) located on the south side of the stadium
All other lots will be available to faculty, staff and students with appropriate parking permits for work- and class-related parking. However, at 1:30 p.m., MSU Police parking division staff will begin to restrict entry into tailgating pass lots. Faculty and staff needing to leave their lot over the noon hour should return prior to 1:30 p.m. to ensure reentry. Alternately, faculty and staff may obtain passes from their departments to park in designated public lots at no cost.
For game-day parking-related questions, please contact MSU Police at (517) 355-8440.
