Parking for University Employees and Students

The All A Classic provides the University and the City of Richmond an opportunity to showcase our campus to prospective future Colonels.  As many of our guests will not be familiar with Richmond and our campus, we are asking that faculty, staff and students to avoid parking in the Alumni Coliseum lot Wednesday, January 22-Sunday, January 26, 2020.  It is anticipated that the Alumni Coliseum parking lot will experience heavy traffic flows for the duration of the event.
