2/3 Parking/Traffic Alert for Monday’s Basketball Game

The UConn women’s basketball team takes on the University of Oregon on Monday, Feb. 3, 2020 at Gampel Pavilion in Storrs at 7 p.m.

The game is expected to draw a capacity crowd as the Huskies are currently ranked fourth in the current Associated Press poll and the Ducks are third.

Ticket holders for the game are encouraged to allow extra time to park and enter Gampel Pavilion. For ticket holders and UConn employees and students that are on campus during the business day, there are a number of traffic patterns in place for home basketball games on the Storrs campus.

The routes are in place to improve traffic flow and mitigate the effects related to the construction of new athletics facilities on Jim Calhoun Way.

Ticket holders who would like to use garage parking but do not already have a game day pass for the South Garage, are highly encouraged to use the North Garage (next to Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts) as it is expected the South Garage will reach capacity with pass holders.

A few important reminders for faculty, staff and students that park in either the North or South garages during the business day:

  • North Garage exiting will only be to the right on Hillside Road starting at 5 p.m. and continuing through the end of the game.
  • South Garage lower level exiting vehicles will be directed to the left only and then directed on Alumni Drive and will exit campus through the Hilltop Apartment complex starting at 5 p.m. and continuing through the end of the game.

Fans are reminded that UConn Transportation Services offers two express shuttle bus services for free on game days, starting two hours before tipoff and continuing through postgame.

A shuttle runs from F Lot off of North Eagleville Road with dropoff at the Werth Family Basketball Champions Center, directly next to Gampel Pavilion. The same route is followed for postgame. Parking in F Lot is free. This service begins 90 minutes before each game (5:30 p.m. for the Oregon game) and continues for 60 minutes after the game.

A shuttle is also available from the Downtown Storrs Parking Garage (33 Royce Circle) to the corner of Hillside and Gilbert roads – about a three-minute walk to Gampel Pavilion.
