The Mountain West Conference Basketball Tournament will be taking place at the Thomas and Mack Center from Monday, March 5, 2018 through Saturday, March 10, 2018.  This tournament attracts a large number of attendees each year and every effort is made to minimize the parking impacts resulting from the games.  Load-in for the event will begin Sunday, March 4, 2018.

The Black VIP Lot  (located directly south of the Thomas and Mack Center) and additional spaces to the south (total of approximately 578 spaces), will be closed as needed from Monday, March 5, 2018 through Saturday, March 10, 2018, based on the particular game being played.

ALTERNATIVE PARKING – Additional parking may be available in the Cottage Grove Parking Garage or the Stan Fulton parking lot on the north side of campus for those individuals wanting to avoid the traffic challenges.  The parking demand for students around the Thomas and Mack Center will be the greatest on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 and Thursday, March 8, 2018. Traffic impacts for faculty and staff in the area will be the greatest at the end of the workday on Thursday, March 8, 2018 and Friday, March 9, 2018. Please be advised that heavy traffic volumes could be experienced during these dates and times.
