As we look forward to the Taylor Swift and Bayou Country Superfest concerts held in Tiger Stadium May 22 – May 24, 2015, LSU would like to notify students, faculty, and staff of a few parking and traffic notes for Friday, May 22, 2015. Since the university is open and intersession classes will be in session, LSU has coordinated the following parking arrangements.
Students will be able to park in the Parker Coliseum lot at South Stadium and Highland, and lot X-175 on the corner of West Parker and Highland. A shuttle will be provided from the X-175 lot and will drop off on South Stadium Drive at CEBA Lane. The shuttle will run continuously from 7 a.m.-5 p.m.
Staff with C permits will have access to their reserved lots within the blue area of the parking map until 1 p.m. After 1 p.m., the lots will open up for concert parking. Staff will still have access to these lots after 1 p.m., but gate arms will not be activated. Staff with C reserved permits will have access to the Union Square Garage to park at no cost after 1 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.
Staff with B permits will be valid for the Zone B Central lots within the blue area of the parking map and the Union Square Parking Garage at no charge after 1 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.
Staff with A permits that utilize the parking lots along Nicholson Extension will be allowed to park in the Electrical Engineering/Dalrymple lot on Forestry Lane and after 1 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. in the Union Square Parking Garage at no cost.
Please note there are approximately 450 spaces available in the Union Square Parking Garage.
