Special Event Parking

All activities on the UAMS campus begin and end with parking. We ask for your partnership in creating a positive experience for our patients and visitors. Poor event planning can reflect negatively on the UAMS Campus, Event Sponsor, and the Parking Department. We ask that anyone sponsoring an event on campus to coordinate their guest parking needs in advance.

  • A Special Event is defined as 20 or more “off campus” visitors.
  • Parking requests should be submitted prior to sending invitations to guests.
  • Special Event parking should be requested using the Special Event Parking Request form. The form can be completed and submitted electronically. A printable version of our Special Event parking application can be downloaded and submitted via fax 686-8598 or interoffice mail Slot 582.
  • All requests will be processed on a space available basis.
  • If your request is approved for deck parking regular parking rates will apply. If your department chooses to provide Event Validations please submit a sample of the validation you will be using. Event Validations should include the name of your event along with the event date.

While every effort will be made to assist departments in providing convenient event parking, minimizing patient service disruption is priority. This means not all requests for deck parking can be accommodated.

Shuttle Services

If your special event request for deck parking cannot be approved due to high patient and visitor volume, parking will be available on the Ray Winder Lot. Arrow Coach currently provides shuttle service for our campus that can be utilized by special event guests. Current shuttle routes and times are available for your convenience. Based on the number of guests and the scheduled time of your event you may want to consider providing additional shuttle service; additional fees will apply. Please contact Parking Operation for more information.

Valet Services

Ambassador Plus is our contract provider for patient / visitor valet services. Our primary patient contract does not provide for special event services. If you are interested in providing valet parking for your special event you will need to coordinate with Ambassador Plus; additional fees will apply. Please contact Parking Operations for more information.

Additional Information

When there is scheduling flexibility, plan activities during times when parking demand is relatively low – late afternoons, evenings, Fridays, and weekends. Parking 3 is primarily a patient deck and has a very high patient volume. Therefore, event parking will be very limited on Parking 3 Monday – Thursday.

All UAMS parking and traffic regulations apply during events. Parking is not permitted in fire lanes, no parking zones, handicap accessible spaces (without permits), or other areas not posted for parking. Failure to comply with parking regulations may result in issuance of parking citations or towing of vehicle.

Please contact Parking Operations at 526-PARK if you have any questions regarding Special Event Parking.
