The Winnipeg Blue Bombers kick-off against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at 7 p.m. on Friday, August 16, 2013 at Investors Group Field. Vehicle access to the Fort Garry campus and on-campus parking restrictions will begin at 5:30 p.m., while traffic set-up could begin as early as 4:30 p.m. Please watch for signage indicating traffic flow changes as you enter and exit campus.
Once again, there are no access restrictions for those travelling to and from campus on foot, by bike or by bus.
Those students, staff and faculty members travelling to campus by car between 5:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. will require a valid U of M parking permit and must enter via Kings Drive. This dedicated entrance is for U of M permit holders only, providing a shorter, easier route of entry. After 5:30 p.m., permit holders wishing to access campus via University Crescent or Chancellor Matheson will be rerouted to the Kings Drive entrance.
If you are unsure where the Kings Drive entrance is located, or how to access it, please follow this link to view a detailed map: http://goo.gl/maps/rh4qI
Those with a U of M parking permit can use any of the following lots, regardless of the letter that appears on their pass:
- A Lot
- B Lot
- L Lot
- AC Lot (southeast corner of Freedman Crescent)
- CTC Lot at the Crop Technology Centre
- D Lot (June-August only)
- R Lot (June-August only) Students who are registered for a class on Friday evening should have already received an email outlining how to obtain a temporary evening parking pass through Parking Services.

I encourage all of you to take in an event at the new stadium. Cheer on your own University of Manitoba Bisons football team on August 30 at 7 p.m. during their first game in the new stadium. Having superior spaces like Investors Group Field serve the students, staff and faculty of our university, making for a more dynamic, innovative and community-focused campus.
Thank you for your continued patience and support as we navigate this opening season at Investors Group Field.
Next Event Day: Sunday, September 8, 2013, Winnipeg Blue Bombers host the Banjo Bowl. Event starts at 3 p.m., access and parking restrictions begin at 1:30 p.m.
