Parking Permits for SPECIAL OLYMPICS 2017

Welcome parents and family members! The University’s Online Parking Permits Purchase System allows you to instantly purchase and print parking permits from your computer. If you plan to park on campus, we strongly recommend you use this system to secure your parking pass prior to arrival.

The Soldiers Field Park Garage is the designated parking facility for visitors during Special Olympics 2017 for Saturday and Sunday; the cost for the parking dashboard permit is $5.00 per weekend day. Each permit is valid from 7:00am until 11:30pm for the day it was purchased for. Please note: Permits will be available on site at either the Soldiers Field Park Garage or the HBS Business School Lot. The cost, however, will be $7.00 per weekend day.
