  • WKU faculty and staff members displaced from Diddle, South Lawn and Russellville Road lots for Friday games should utilize PS1, Jones-Jaggers, Service Supply, Mimosa, Adams Street, Kentucky Street Paved Lot, and other lots on campus.
  • WKU Housing students who normally use Creason Lot should park in other housing lots or Chestnut South Lot. Cars parked in the Creason Lot must be removed by 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1. Vehicles remaining in the lot after 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, will be fined $100.
  • WKU commuter students who normally use Parking Structure 2 or Chestnut South Lot should park in other Commuter lots on campus, such as the Center Street Gravel Lot, or utilize available park and ride lots at South Campus. Buses run from the Campbell Lane and South Campus lots every 5 to 8 minutes. For Friday, Dec. 2, only, commuters may also park at the new parking structure on Kentucky Street across from the Student Life Foundation Gravel Lot.

Will traffic patterns change?

With more than 35,000 fans are expected on campus over the two days, traffic on and around campus will be more congested than usual. Guests are being directed to use University Boulevard to access event parking lots.

The Diddle Arena side of Avenue of Champions (right lane only) will be closed from the North Diddle lot past the stadium. This lane will be used for unloading and loading of team, band and fan buses. Those buses then will be directed to park in the Service Supply and Adams Street lots.

After each game, traffic exiting PS2 will be directed north onto University Boulevard to Kentucky Street. Traffic exiting PS1 will be directed east onto College Heights Boulevard. Traffic exiting the Creason Lot will be directed south on Creason Drive to Emmett Avenue.
