CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Traffic flow and parking around the UNI-Dome have changed to accommodate McLeod Center construction and the redesign of Nebraska Street.

Parking for the general public is available in the lot north of the UNI-Dome. General-admission ticket holders can enter through the UNI-Dome's northeast entrance. Athletic Club members have reserved parking in the parking lot west of the UNI-Dome or south of 27th Street. Handicap-accessible parking for those with tickets in the west bleachers, sections K through S, is available in the parking lot west of the UNI-Dome. Handicap-accessible parking for those with tickets in the east bleachers, sections A through J, is available in the metered parking lot west of the Wellness/Recreation Center. Meter fees in the WRC lot will not be enforced for game parking. UNI-Dome officials encourage early arrival for handicap-accessible parking.

The University of Northern Iowa Panthers football team opens its season at the UNI-Dome at 7:05 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1, against the Drake Bulldogs.

The UNI-Dome opens 90 minutes before kick-off, and tailgating is allowed four hours before game time. Tailgaters are not allowed to have kegs, bottles or open flames. Tailgating ends at kick-off.

UNI students receive free admission to UNI athletic events with a valid student ID. Students should use the northeast or southeast UNI-Dome entrances.
