Parking for People with Disabilities

The University of Alabama provides a limited number of parking spaces for people with disabilities. 

For people who use a wheelchair, accessible parking is located at the lot on Wallace Wade Ave. (#1 on the www.uagameday.com parking map), the Communications Card Lot (#2 on the www.uagameday.com parking map).  Parking in all of these lots will be FREE on A-Day.

All other parking for people with disabilities is located at the Campus Drive Deck (Campus Drive Parking Deck at the Hackberry Lane and Campus Drive intersection).  We are pleased that we will be able to offer more services at this location and more parking space is available to accommodate the fans.  This deck serves at the hub for the Crimson Ride transit system.  Restroom facilities are conveniently located in the Campus Drive Deck. Crimson Ride buses will transport fans from this location to the Quad for the festivities there.

Bus transportation will begin running shuttles at the following times to the following locations:

  • To The Quad - 7 a.m. on Gameday
  • To Bryant-Denny Stadium - 3 hours prior to kickoff (11 a.m.)

Or take the STADIUM STROLL (less than a 1 mile walk from the parking facility to Bryant Denny Stadium).  Marked pedestrian paths will lead you from the parking facility to the stadium.

In addition, there are many other parking lots and side-street parking spaces that are free of charge near the Intermodal Facility.  You may park there and walk to the bus pick-up or take the Stadium Stroll to Bryant Denny Stadium.

Please note that parking on sidewalks or blocking handicap accessible ramps will NOT be allowed. This will be strictly enforced and vehicles found in violation will be subject to being towed at their expense. Also, parking in post-game exit routes, transit lanes or areas indicated as no parking zones is prohibited. Violators are subject to having their vehicles towed at their expense.

Smoke Free Campus

Like many other campuses nationwide, The University of Alabama is now a Smoke Free Campus. The change, effective Jan. 1, 2015, is designed to make the campus a healthier environment for our students, faculty, staff and visitors. Smoking of any lit product (including e-cigarettes) is prohibited on UA grounds, parking structures, athletic facilities and buildings. Whether you are a smoker or a non-smoker, UA knows that the campus community will demonstrate thoughtfulness, consideration and cooperation as we work together to successfully implement this campuswide policy. Please see http://www.ua.edu/smokefree/ for more information on UA’s Smoke Free Campus.
