Subject:Scheduled Events to Affect Parking in Stadium Lots

I want to make you aware of several planned events scheduled for Veterans Memorial Stadium that will impact availability of parking in the stadium lots for UMMC personnel.

On the dates listed below, college football or a band competition will be held in the stadium. On these days, the parking lots around the stadium are closed to parking for UMMC personnel. Vehicles that remain in the stadium parking lots after 4 a.m. are subject to being towed by JSU on game days. As always, UMMC personnel working a night, weekend or holiday shift may park on campus in a surface lot or request garage access by emailing

Additionally, on Friday evenings prior to Jackson State University games, UMMC personnel must remove vehicles from the Stadium Overflow Lot by 5:30 p.m. to make the space available for JSU tailgating activities.  Vehicles that remain in the overflow lot after 5:30 pm on Friday evenings are subject to being towed by JSU.

  • Sept. 23: JSU football
  • Oct. 1: JSU Battle of the Bands
  • Oct. 14: JSU football
  • Nov. 4: JSU football
  • Nov. 18: JSU football

Any changes or updates to the above stadium events schedule, including additions that impact UMMC personnel parking at the stadium, will be communicated through the UMMC Intranet. For questions or more information, please email

Thank you.
