Yeah looks like the University has completely disconnected the game and parking lot utilization from the parking needs around the bulk of the events happening on campus. Which i expected. I still believe that if the show was coming they would have opened the lots MUCH earlier.

Hmmm, so this includes the E Adams/University lot I assume? Or are they independent from the University? I had hoped to roll in and set up around noon.

Just what I came here for! I'm a Clemson fan coming from PA. Given that parking is limited, what is my experience likely to be like? How far are these lots and how fast will they likely fill up? Just trying to know all I can before I get there. Thanks.

If you’re up for a few block walk from the Dome, park at one of the hospital garages. $25

They say 3:00 technically but you can get there whenever you want. Thousands will be in all lots at 12:00 including yours truly
Ok, sounds good. Shooting for a noon arrival

bring your clear tote with your 2 unopened bottled waters, im kinda assuming the water was a trade off for the 50 % coupons before kickoff

Marin Lurther King Elementary is normally $5 but expect it to be higher for the game. Not a bad walk up the two hills to the stadium.

Do yourself a favor with the construction going on on the soon to be improved Dome, The hype the build up in the excitement with record crowds for this game, park in downtown Syracuse at the old Hotel Syracuse now known as the Syracuse Marriott, and take their shuttle up right to the front of the DOME. No brainer

Article says “a chance to meet Freeney”. Does anyone know precisely what he’ll be doing? Signing?

Not really. You have been able to bring in water previously, I think they just didn't advertise it until the FSU debacle last year (stadium concessions ran out of water in 90 deg. best in many locations).

If you're not tailgating and you want to show up early and wander around campus, do this. Crouse garage is on Irving just south of East Adams; there's another private garage one long block southeast of that with an entrance near the northeast corner of Irving and Waverly. I don't know if they take plastic, but the price is pretty reasonable (and everything in the neighborhood controlled by SU is permit-only).

My understanding is that the shuttle drops people off at the Schine Student Center on University Place. Not what I would call right to the front of the Dome. If you know something otherwise, please share.

One thing to keep in mind is that while SU hasn't really enforced the official lot opening times in the past, with all the construction and other issues and hype for this game don't be surprised if they suddenly start policing the lots.

We called and were told parking lot attendants will be set up at 1 PM. Wonder if you can still get up there before then?

Are you looking at a public lot or do you have a parking pass?
