Your priority level is determined by your annual contribution. Each annual giving category is assigned independently. Donors must purchase football season tickets to be eligible. Please be aware that no choice or previous parking assignment is guaranteed. 

Priority I:

All donors giving $10,000+ annually are eligible to purchase two or more passes based on giving level and priority point rank, see FAQs below for quantities.

All donors giving $5,000-$9,999 annually are eligible to purchase one pass based on priority point rank.

Priority III:

All donors giving $100-$4,999 annually are eligible to purchase one pass based on priority point rank.

Tennessee Fund members who donate at least $100 annually and have football season tickets have the opportunity to request a football parking pass.

Donors who are not assigned a pass will then be notified and refunded.

2016 Guidelines: G10, G10T, G5/30, 9 and 9B

 

G10 Permit Holders:

The top level of G10 (level 5) is now a separate lot: G10T. Only G10T permit holders can park on level 5. G10 permit holders may only park within the garage (levels 1-4).

From 7:00 am when the G10 garage opens until 1.5 hours prior to kick-off, G10 permit holders may park in any available parking space in the garage (levels 1-4).

Please make sure your permit is displayed on your dash/mirror upon arrival.

As a customer service, gameday personnel will help G10 permit holders identify the next available parking spot in the G10 garage (levels 1-4) beginning 1.5 hours prior to kick-off.

Phillip Fulmer Way closes to all traffic 30 minutes prior to kick-off. Therefore, G10 permit holders arriving close to kick-off may only enter the garage from the Neyland Drive entrance.

G10 Tailgating Guidelines:

In order to utilize all parking spaces and ensure a safe, secure and positive experience for all fans, the following policies are in effect for G10 and G10T on football game days:

Tailgate footprints behind your parking space must not impede the safe flow of traffic to any parking areas.

Please minimize the number of guests invited to your tailgate party in G10 and G10T. In the event a University official determines your tailgate creates a safety or logistical issue, you will be asked to disperse, reduce your tailgate to an acceptable size or leave the garage.

The fire and safety lane must remain clear and unobstructed of any item that would prevent the safe movement of vehicles. University officials will move any items that are in the safety lane. We ask for your cooperation and request that you help encourage others in G10 and G10T to treat their fellow pass holders with respect and courtesy.

G10 Post Game Egress:

To allow for efficient egress, gameday personnel and law enforcement will assist at both exits (Phillip Fulmer Way and Neyland Drive) to ensure a safe and organized flow out of G10. When exiting onto Neyland Drive, traffic flows east and west with the assistance of UT Campus Police.

2016 Football Parking FAQs

What is a ‘giving level’ and how do I know which one I fall under?

The Tennessee Fund has multiple categories that are listed below, and each category comes with various benefits associated with it (click here for more member benefit information). Your giving level is determined by your annual contribution to the Tennessee Fund.

Foothills: $100+ Annually
Trailblazer: $1,000+ Annually
Mountaineer: $2,500+ Annually
Bronze Victor: $5,000+ Annually
Silver Victor: $10,000+ Annually
Gold Victor: $15,000+ Annually
NDS: $250,000+ (Over a 10 year period)

I have several types of giving with the Tennessee Fund.  How will my parking be assigned?

Each annual giving category is assigned independently based on the priority level it falls under. For example, a donor with two seats in the Tennessee Terrace that also makes a $250 donation for seating in the south upper deck would have passes assigned based on their donor rank in Priority II (for $5,000 contribution associated with two seats in the Tennessee Terrace) and Priority III (for $250 Foothills contribution). 

How is my loyalty rewarded in this system?

Your parking pass is assigned based on your Tennessee Fund rank within your priority level. Your rank is determined primarily by your lifetime giving. Additionally, you can receive points for consecutive years of giving, alumni status or other factors (click here for more information).

I have been a Trailblazer ($1,000 - $2,499 annual contribution) since 1986. How will my parking be assigned?

Your parking will be assigned in Priority III based on your donor rank. Donor assignments in Priority I and Priority II, along with any donor ranked higher than you in Priority III, will determine lot availability for your assignment.

I am a Mountaineer ($2,500 - $4,999 annual contribution) and have accessible parking needs. How will my parking be assigned?

Your parking pass will be assigned in Priority III based on your donor rank. Donor requests in Priority I and Priority II, along with any donor ranked higher than you in Priority III, will determine lot availability for your parking assignment.

I still have questions. Who do I contact?

The Tennessee Fund staff may be contacted Monday-Friday 8 am to 5 pm EDT by phone at (865) 974-1218, by email at tnfund@utk.edu or you may chat live with a member of our staff during the day, Monday-Friday between 8 a.m.-5 p.m. EDT.
