New for 2013: GameDay Changes
BATON ROUGE – Beginning with the 2013 football season, LSU game day parking lots have been renamed to accommodate the large number of reserved lots currently in use as well as to provide a more efficient way to direct fans to their lots on campus.
As a result, LSU has issued the following list of parking updates and reminders to help fans become familiar with the new system prior to coming to campus for Saturday’s home-opener against UAB:

New Parking Lot Names
Beginning with the 2013 Football Season, LSU gameday parking lots will be renamed to accommodate the large amount of reserved lots currently in use as well as to provide efficient directional signs for fans entering campus. We have renamed each lot on campus from the alphabetical system to a numerical system based on dividing the campus into quadrants (100’s, 200’s, 300’s, and 400’s) in relation to Tiger Stadium.
This will not affect current parking permit locations. Permit holders will remain in their current parking lot locations, however, the name of the lots have changed. View the updated gameday parking map here. View the old and new lot names here.
“Follow the Gold” – New Gameday Parking Signage
To go along with our new parking lot names, we have installed new gameday parking lot signage across campus. The new signs are all uniform in design and are the color gold. We ask fans to “Follow the Gold” this season to find their parking lot.
New Pregame Traffic Route Selection Tool
LSU has a new convenient way for fans to find the best pregame route to the game. Click here to use the new tool that lets fans find a suggested access route to the parking lot they plan on using for the game. Simply select the parking lot and then enter your inbound direction on Interstate 10. A suggested access route will be given based on pregame traffic restrictions. Please be reminded to adhere to all law enforcement direction during pregame and postgame traffic.
