GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota is serving as host to both the Big Sky Conference Women’s Basketball tournament and the National Collegiate Hockey Conference quarterfinal round this week. As such, UND fans should anticipate heavy traffic loads and are encouraged to arrive on site as early as possible in an effort to make the traffic and parking process as smooth as possible for all fans. 

On Thursday and Saturday, North Dakota Champions Club members with basketball hang-tag parking passes will be able to park in all REA lots as usual.  Free general parking will also be available in the REA parking lots on Thursday and Saturday.

On Friday, due to the overlap of the Big Sky Conference Championship and NCHC Quarterfinal playoffs, fans should expect significant changes to normal basketball parking. Those fans with men’s hockey hang-tags need to use them to park on-site at REA at their normal hockey parking location. For those with a basketball hang-tag, but not a men’s hockey hang-tag, your basketball hang-tag will be honored at the UND Wellness Center lot (Friday only). 

Free general parking for Friday will be allowed in the UND Wellness Center lot (subject to availability) and the UND parking lot on the southwest corner of Princeton and 6th Avenue North. Fans without a hang-tag are asked to park in either of those two locations for the basketball games Friday.

Fans are reminded to please drive with caution in and around the facility throughout the weekend.
