Kansas Football Parking, Tailgating, Free Shuttle Notes

Aug. 28, 2007

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Construction is well underway on the $31-million Anderson Family Football Complex just southwest of Kivisto Field at Memorial Stadium. Here are some notes about how the construction will and won’t affect Game Day at Memorial Stadium in 2007.

You will still be able to tailgate on Campanile Hill. KU Public Safety will establish a boundary line to designate where tailgating is allowed on the hill.

New parking lots have been built near the stadium, and free shuttles will take fans to and from the stadium from non-adjacent parking lots (starting two hours before game time). Log on to this address for a Tailgating/Shuttle map:

The University has added several new `tailgating-allowed” parking lots. Those lots are: 1, 33, 36, 39, 50, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 72, 91, 94, 124 and part of 3. Tailgating is permitted in the Mississippi Street parking garage, but no cooking is allowed there.

Public toll parking for home football games will no longer be available on Memorial Drive or in the Mississippi Street garage. KU Parking & Transit will sell a limited number of parking spaces in lot 72 between the Allen Fieldhouse parking garage and the Burge Union. This is now an approved tailgating lot. The free shuttle will serve this lot.

Free public parking will be available in lots 90 (east of Allen Fieldhouse), 71, 125 and 127 (south of Allen Fieldhouse), and 61 and 62 (east of the computer center on Sunnyside Avenue). The free shuttle will serve lot 90, but not the other free lots.

One other change: The Allen Fieldhouse parking garage will be available only to those with valid KU parking permits.

During this season normal walking patterns will be altered slightly while construction continues. Despite that, fans will still be able to walk down Campanile Hill.
