The event organizer can pre-purchase garage vouchers with CampusParc or invite their guests to pay on their own.

Temperature:Unfortunately for events held during the winter months, we experience some difficulty with maintaining a "comfortably" warm room temperature. However, there are several factors that can also contribute to the room temperature. For instance, if there is an event with 200+ guests, this will obviously keep the temperature higher. For smaller events, we suggest mentioning "proper attire" to guests. Please keep this in mind when determining the date of your event. If the event is scheduled in the months of January or February, we strongly encourage you to notify guests of the cooler temperature conditions.
Signage:We do not provide signage for events; however, we can assist you in displaying signage you provide. For example, if you have a banner (depending on size) we can hang it on the gates outside of the stadium near the Huntington Club entrance. We can also hang the banner from pipe and drape in the entrance to the Club Room.
Tours:For an additional $1.00 charge per guest, a tour of the stadium can be offered during your event. If you are interested in adding a tour, please note this upon making your request.
