PARKING

University of Lynchburg will be celebrating the institution's classes of 2019 with Commencement ceremonies over the weekend, and so parking will be at a premium in and around campus. Fans are encouraged to park in the university-owned lots along the south side of Lakeside Drive. There will be no parking charge for fans on university-owned property. Click here for a map highlighting encouraged parking areas.

Fans may use the small parking lot off Hopwood Drive adjacent to Moon Field for a handicapped drop-off area, but that lot will be closed to the public at large. Please contact sports information director Mark Robertson or facilities director Bruce Reid with any questions regarding parking.
