Football Parking


The Wildcat Fund recognizes that parking is a very important component of the game day experience.

As a result, the Wildcat Fund offers members different opportunities for preferred parking locations. Parking lots are located in the Evanston Hospital parking structure, on the Canal Shores and adjacent to Ryan Field in the East and West parking lots. Lot assignments are allocated based on parking tiers and Purple Points. In order to qualify for parking, donors must make their gifts to the Wildcat Excellence Fund. Parking is available only to season ticket holders and must be requested when purchasing season tickets.


Football parking will be assigned based on Tier.
  • Tier 1 - $6,000 +
  • Tier 2 - $2,500 - $5,999
  • Tier 3 - $600 - $2,499

For donors at $12,500 and above, we will provide a reserved, numbered parking space in the West Lot adjacent to Ryan Field. Donors who give $6,000 or more will be ranked by their Purple Points and will have their first choice of parking lot. Once all donors at $6,000 have received parking, donors at $2,500 will have the opportunity to select the lot of their choice. Finally, donors at $600 will have the opportunity to select their parking location.

If you are interested in purchasing multiple parking passes, please refer to the guidelines below:

Contribution Amount Number of Season Tickets Maximum Number of Parking Passes
$6,000 + or 6 or more Two (2)
$600 +or 1 or more One (1)

Interested in Stadium Club, Wildcat Den or Box Seats?

Each of these premium seating areas requires a minimum per seat contribution to qualify. Making the minimum per seat donation does not guarantee assignment in one of these premium areas since assignment is based on Purple Points and availability. All premium seating areas were sold out for the 2015 season. The Wildcat Fund cannot project the necessary Purple Points to obtain seating in these areas until after the ticket renewal deadline. We can, however, provide historical information as a reference.

To purchase non-premium seating locations, please visit NUsports.com/tickets.

To learn more about premium seating opportunities, please call 847-467-4321.
