Unless you hold a season parking pass or a handicapped parking pass, you will not be allowed to park in Ryan Field's East and West Parking Lots (located at Ashland Avenue and Central Street in Evanston). In addition, street parking immediately around the stadium is limited, and authorities are vigilant about towing violators.

Shuttle buses begin running approximately two hours before kickoff, and run until one hour after the conclusion of the game. Fans are also encouraged to use CTA transportation (El and buses), and depart early for the game.
A reminder that Northwestern fans can welcome the Wildcats with "Walk With Us" at 8:30 a.m. at Walker Way.
