For Men’s Basketball athletic events, the entire Coleman Coliseum parking lot is a reserved area and requires a parking permit to enter and park. The reserved area includes all parking surrounding Coleman Coliseum and certain parking areas surrounding the UA Football Athletic Facility.  Parking permits will be checked on Bryant Drive, prior to entering the Coleman Coliseum parking lot.

See map for map of reserved and general public parking locations. 


Fans with the following permits are allowed access into the reserved area:

Lot A- Players, Coaches and Tide Pride
Lot B- Tide Pride
Lot C- UA Maintenance & Facilities
Lot D- Vendors
Lot L- UA Law School permit holders (no event parking allowed)
VIP Parking


Handicap Accessible Parking includes any person with a valid state issued handicap permit and is available in three designated locations:

  • First six rows of parking along the east side of Coleman Coliseum
  • Designated spaces on the north side of Coleman Coliseum

Lot A Parking and Disability Parking have combined in the lot to create a larger area for both sets of permit holders.

Disability drop-off is on the east side of the Coliseum near the elevator.  You may experience some traffic post-game for pick-up, but that is due to the bus pick-up on the east drive.

Anyone using any of the disability parking areas must have the appropriate state identification for the mobility impaired parking. Please make sure your pass is displayed at all times.


Public Parking is available in areas located north and west of Coleman Coliseum. This includes the Soccer parking lot (with bus service available during SEC Conference games) the Moody Music parking lot,  the Alumni Hall parking lot, the surface lot located at the southwest corner of Paul W. Bryant Drive and Hackberry Lane, UA Aquatic center south lot, Baptist Student Union parking lot and the Hayden Harris parking lot.  See Map for details.  

Public Parking is available in the Soccer lot located on University Boulevard.  For your convenience during SEC Conference games, starting one hour before tip-off, the Crimson Ride Transit system will run a direct route that will transport fans from the Soccer Lot to the east side of Coleman Coliseum.  After the game, the buses will pick up on the east side of the coliseum near the steps.  Look for the signs on University Boulevard directing you to the Soccer lot.  This service is FREE of charge for all fans.   We encourage you to ride the Crimson Ride; however, if you decide to walk from the Soccer lot, please use designated sidewalks and crosswalks.  

Please observe all posted parking regulations. Automobiles are allowed to park in any non-reserved and legal parking space on campus after 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

Note: Vehicle parking is NOT allowed on sidewalks or yellow curbs.  Any vehicle found violating this guideline will be towed at the owner’s expense. 

Please note that parking is NOT allowed in the grass areas around the Moody Music Building.
