East Campus Weekend Parking

Parking Services does not monitor University parking lots on East Campus after 4 p.m. on Fridays through 7 a.m. on Mondays. You may park an unregistered or non-permitted car on campus during those times.

Even though the lots are not monitored, all departments on East Campus are to provide event/parking information to Mackayla Kelsey in the Vice Chancellor's office via a Weekend Events Log at least 10 days before a scheduled event. The Vice Chancellor's office will provide that information to the Special Events staff in Parking and Transit Services. If the event is within 10 days, the department is still required to complete/submit the log form. If the special event on the UNL East Campus requires more than parking space (i.e., parking attendants, reserved parking or covered meters), the unit hosting the event will be responsible for paying the additional costs.

If SNR Event Planning staff is working with you on an event, they will complete/submit the log for you. If you are not working through SNR Event Planning staff, you are responsible for completing and submitting the form.
