Effective immediately, the SLU community should be aware of the proper parking arrangements for events at Chaifetz Arena. The resident lots are unavailable for Arena event parking - please avoid the Gonzaga, Regis, St. Peters, and LeMoyne lots.

Event Parking east of Grand Avenue (Olive Garage & designated lots)
All revenue from Chaifetz Arena parking supports the building operation. SLU permit holders will be required to pay the designated parking fees at these locations:

  • The Olive Garage has been the main location patrons are using for Arena parking.
  • Some drivers prefer the surface parking lots, which offer convenient entry and exit and help to ease traffic congestion. Lots available for event parking include:
    • Theresa (at Olive & Theresa)
    • Washington North & South (at Washington and Josephine Baker)
    • Monastero (Olive east of Compton, between Cardinal and Garrison)
    • Sigma-Aldrich (at Compton and Spruce)
