Golden Bear Luncheon Parking

Guests who purchased parking with their Luncheon ticket will self-park at the Stadium Garage (2175 Gayley Road). This garage is located between the California Memorial Stadium, the Greek Theatre, and the Haas School of Business. Upon entering the garage, you will take a ticket from the machine, please keep this ticket as you will need it to exit the garage at the end of the event. Upon checking in at registration, you will receive instructions and a validation ticket for parking.

If you did not purchase parking with your Luncheon tickets, you may still purchase parking from the kiosk in the Stadium Garage.

It is a short walk to the International House, and complimentary golf cart service will be available for all Homecoming guests.  The golf cart stop is located at the garage entrance and will drop off guests at the entrance of the Chevron Auditorium at International House.
