Friday Night Lights

Football: Friday, September 6, 2019, 8:00 PM

Virginia Cavaliers host William & Mary Tribe at Scott Stadium

There are significant impacts of hosting a large event on a weeknight, but the University is committed to supporting all university and health system activities. No classes will be cancelled, and patient care services will be provided as usual. Our team is working hard to mitigate the game’s impact on students, patients, employee work schedules, traffic, and parking. We appreciate your willingness to work with us to help manage this event.

UVA parking permit holders and University Transit Service riders will find specific impacts and alternatives below.


Event Parking for Football Ticket Holders 

Reserved and first-come, first-served parking options for football attendees will not open until 5:30 PM.
