Parking Permits for SPECIAL OLYMPICS 2018

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 2018 for Saturday and Sunday, June 9, 2018 and June 10, 2018; the cost for each day of the event will be $5.00 and valid from 7:00am until 11:30pm. Permits will also be available for purchase on site at the HBS Business School Lot and the Soldiers Field Park Park Garage. However to avoid potential long lines, we strongly suggest purchasing your permit in advance using our Online Permit Purchasing System.
