HOUSTON - As the University of Houston Men's Basketball program prepare to open its season against Florida A&M on Friday, fans should be aware of parking adjustments for that game due to the earlier-than-usual start.

The Cougars meet the Rattlers at noon, Friday, inside Hofheinz Pavilion. The game was moved up to accommodate fans wishing to attend the Athletics Hall of Honor Gala later that evening during a busy Homecoming weekend on the UH campus.

Not all fans will be affected by Friday's parking adjustments. Changes were based on the lot that fans were assigned based off their Cougar Pride donations. Fans with any questions upon arrival should speak with a 5-Star parking attendant.

Cougar Pride and Houston Athletics do not own the parking on campus or surrounding the Athletics facilities. In the event a parking lot becomes unavailable for use, Cougar Pride administrators will do all that is possible to move fans to the best available alternative parking option until the situation is resolved.

Fans looking for more information or with questions may call the Cougar Pride Office at 713-743-GOUH (4684)

• Parking will be available in front of the Athletics/Alumni Center for those donors with this parking pass.

• Parking will be available in the Garrison Lot. If a fan's named spot is taken, they are asked to move to an open, unmarked spot in the remainder of the 15C Red Lot.



• Fans with these passes can gain entrance to this lot based on availability.
• Overflow parking from 15C Red Lot will be located across the street in Lot 15D at the corner of Scott Street and Holman Street.

• Fans who present a handicapped placard with or without a Cougar Pride parking pass may gain entrance to this lot at no charge.
• If parking for this lot is full, overflow parking will be directed to Lot 15D located on the corner of Scott Street and Holman Street. To access Lot 15D, fans should turn right out of Lot 15B, drive past the stadium parking garage and take the first left into Lot 15D.

• Fans with passes for Lots 16B/C also can gain entrance to Lot 15D at no charge based on availability.

• There will be NO GAME DAY USAGE of this lot due to faculty, staff and student parking.

For those fans looking to get an early start on the weekend, all public tickets for Friday's game will be sold for only $5. For only $5 more, fans at Friday's game can receive lunch, which includes a hot dog, chips and a drink.

Single-game tickets for the month of November and a variety of ticket packs are now on sale inside the Houston Athletics Ticket Office.
