HOUSTON - With a busy day planned Saturday around the University of Houston Athletics/Alumni Center, school administrators issued a parking advisory for fans planning to attend Saturday evening's Men's Basketball game vs. UCF.
The Cougars play host to UCF at 5 p.m., Saturday, inside Hofheinz Pavilion. In addition to that event, Houston Athletics will play host to indoor track and field high school meets , while the University will enjoy multiple Music School events during the next two weekends. As a result, parking for Saturday's and the Jan. 26 Men's Basketball games may be affected.
Parking in lots 16B and 16C (Yellow Lots) may be limited. However, additional parking will be available in lots 16D, 16E and 18A. SEE PARKING MAP
Donor parking for 15C Named Lot, 15C, 15H Named Lot and 15B handicap parking will remain the same. Overflow for Lot 15C (Red Lot) as well as cash parking will remain in the Stadium Parking Garage in the middle entrance on Holman Street.
Fans should remember that they are guaranteed a spot in one of the aforementioned parking lots as long as they display their parking passes. Fans are strongly encouraged to arrive early to support the Coogs!
With recent upgrades, renovations and scheduled construction projects, it is an exciting time to be a part of the University campus. Unfortunately, Cougar Pride and Houston Athletics do not own the parking surrounding our athletic facilities.
Fans with any questions can contact Cougar Pride at 713-743-GOUH (4684) or email email@example.com.
Saturday's game will be Heroes Day inside Hofheinz Pavilion. All military members (current and veteran), police, fire department and EMS personnel can receive General Admission tickets for only $5.
