ACCESSING THE STADIUM
• Access Management System will be used for entry at all gates. The bar code on each ticket will be scanned by the gate attendant. Each individual is encouraged to hold their own ticket to assist in expediting the scanning process. As fans enter the stadium, they should make sure that the ticket-taker has scanned the ticket(s) to ensure that your attendance is counted towards your priority points. If a ticket is damaged and cannot be scanned, fans should visit one of the ticket resolution centers at Ticket Office near Gate 1 and gates 5, 7, 10 and 12.
• Students (Gates 7 & 12) and suite and club seat holders and Santee Lounge guests (Gates 3, 10 and Asp Parking Garage Level 5) may enter the stadium two hours prior to kickoff. All others may enter 90 minutes before kickoff.
• Gates for general public entry are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11 and 12.
• East side suite and club seat holders may enter through gate 10 or any other gate. An interior entrance for club and suite holders also exists inside the stadium at gate 10 for patrons who may have entered the stadium at another location.

• Public Will Call, lost ticket reports and Disability Services are located in the main ticket office, located in the Asp Avenue Parking Facility, near Gate 1.

Limited parking that once existed on Brooks Street (north of the stadium) is no longer available, and that street has been closed. Patrons are reminded to avoid parking in yellow-curbed areas, fire lanes and grass areas. Vehicles parked in those areas may be towed.
Free parking is available at the Lloyd Noble Center located approximately one mile south of the stadium. A shuttle is provided for $2 round trip and unloads one block south of the stadium on First Street. The shuttle provides return trips for one hour after the conclusion of the game.
Most lots near the Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium are reserved and require a pass. Please refer to the football parking map for locations of those lots.
