Men's Basketball Parking Information

Welcome to Duke University!  The following information provides guidelines for parking on campus during Blue Devils men's basketball games.

General Information


General Public Parking Fees

 Vehicle - $10.00  15-Passenger Van - $15.00  RV or Bus - $50.00


Duke University and Medical Center employees whose vehicles display a valid annual Duke parking permit may park in General Public lots without charge.

Iron Duke members at qualifying levels are pre-assigned to parking lots based on priority and availability.  Iron Duke parking passes are mailed separately from season tickets.  See the chart below listing Iron Duke lot locations and opening times.

Accessible parking is provided in the Science Drive visitor lot, across the street from the Fuqua School of Business.  Golf cart shuttles and a wheelchair-accessible van will provide transportation to and from Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Employees and students already parked in their permitted lots may keep their cars in those lots after 4:00 p.m. for weeknight games. 

RV's and buses must park in the Circuit Drive lots for all games.  Enter campus via LaSalle Street (off Erwin Road) to Circuit Drive.  The parking fee for RV's and buses is $50.00.

Motorists are encouraged to avoid Towerview Road unless they have Iron Duke parking permits.  Checkpoints are in place two hours prior to games at the following locations:

  • Intersection of Science Drive and NC 751/Cameron Blvd
  • Intersection of Circuit Drive and Towerview Drive
  • Intersection of Towerview Drive from Duke University Road
  • Intersection of Towerview Drive and Science Drive

All faculty, staff and students without a valid Men's Basketball Iron Duke Pass will be directed to General Public Lots during the two hours the checkpoints are operational.

Illegal Parking on Landscaped Areas:  Illegally parked vehicles cause a safety hazard for all Duke fans, inhibit inbound and outbound traffic flow, and damage the landscaping.  Duke University Police Department strictly enforces illegal parking on landscaped areas along Towerview Road, Science Drive, Circuit Drive and Highway 751 between the intersections of Duke University Road and Science Drive.  Vehicles parked in these areas will be ticketed and towed.
