Northern Illinois University
students will now have better access to some of the best parking at Huskie
Stadium on NIU football game days. Parking
on the grass lot on the East Side of the stadium is now free to any Northern
Illinois student with a valid OneCard on game day.
NIU students are invited to tailgate on the east side of Huskie Stadium beginning five hours before every home game for free on a first-come, first-serve basis. The driver must simply show his or her valid NIU OneCard at the entrance to the lot off of Stadium Drive. The lot will be available until the 200 spaces allocated for student parking are filled.
NIU Athletics will also sell a limited number of season student parking passes which will provide a GUARANTEED spot on the east grass up until 30 minutes before kickoff. Season passes are available for $25 and can be purchased Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. in the NIU Athletics External Office in Suite 213 of the Convocation Center.
All cars must follow Northern Illinois' established guidelines for tailgating regarding parking spaces, music and prohibited items. For more information, call 815-753-PACK (7225) and press 1 for tickets.
