Event Parking 

Events, both on and off campus, such as meetings, conferences, seminars, and camps play an important role in the achievement of the university's mission. 

Requests for Event Parking

University departments and organizations are advised to make parking arrangements with Parking & Transportation Services well in advance of their special events because parking on the requested date may be limited due to space availability, other events at the same time, construction, etc. When multiple events are scheduled on the same date, priority is given to the event that finalizes arrangements with Parking & Transportation Services first.

  • To obtain the best possible parking for event guests and participants, please submit the Event Parking Request a minimum of one week prior to the event.
    • For UNCW registered student organizations, departments, or faculty/staff members please log in to the Campus Reservations System, select Create a Reservation and Event Parking Request.
    • For external organizations please contact parkingevents@uncw.edu

Additional visitor parking spaces may be designated for events. When attending an event on campus, please park in the area designated by the event information. If the event information does not designate a preferred parking area, please park in the visitor lot. For parking lot locations, see the campus map. For additional information, see the Visitor Parking webpage.
