Where to Park

Buses

Competition Day

We will be subsidizing parking for buses on the day of the tournament. When picking up your registration packet, we will hand you a parking pass for your bus. Busses should then proceed to 3100 Lower Walnut Street. Click here for directions. When they arrive, they'll be directed by Penn Police and Penn Parking Services into one of our allocated spots. An image of the lot can be seen below. Please email us by the Wednesday before the tournament at 11:59PM with the type of bus you will be bringing (coach bus or school bus) if you plan on using this free parking option.

Friday night

For teams arriving Friday night that are not able to park at their hotels, we cannot provide parking on directly on campus, as it is not available. However, there are several good options. Parking along Walnut street just ahead of 33rd Street is free from 8PM-8AM, and $1.25 per hour at all other times. This has been cleared as an option by Penn Parking and Transportation Services. Penn Police will also confirm this tomorrow. An alternative option is the lot on 34th Street and Chestnut Street. The cost is $13 per spot for the evening. Images of both of these locations can be seen below.
