Gowans Stadium - There will be very limited parking for media members on the west side of Gowans Stadium. As of this time, there is nothing guaranteed in the way of media parking at Gowans Stadium so get there early.
Sports Arena - Parking is free on the east and west sides of the Sports Arena for basketball. Media members are encouraged to park in the west lot for the easiest access to the will call window.

Media members who do not follow this policy will be subject to revocation of credentials for the entire season.
