Spikes' season to affect campus parking

The State College Spikes' 2019 New York-Penn League season is now underway. The Spikes play their home games at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. Beginning approximately two hours prior to the start of each home game, Jordan East, Stadium West and Porter North will be reserved for Spikes baseball parking at a rate of $5 per vehicle. Vehicles with a valid Penn State faculty/staff or student parking permit will be permitted to park at Jordan East or Stadium West at no additional fee. Porter North will be reserved for Spikes parking only, including VIP parking.

Penn State organizations who typically use or offer use of the commuter lots for evening and/or weekend events to individuals who do not possess valid Penn State parking permits should contact Transportation Services to make advance arrangements for permits. Vehicles without a valid Penn State parking permit will be subject to the $5 event fee, regardless of their event or circumstance. If there are any questions, email or call 814-865-1436.
