Note that the stated number of maximum surface permits does not guarantee that you will actually be assigned any particular number of surface permits, as parking will be assigned based on Panther Club priority point rank as of June 20, 2013.
Requests by Panther Club members for additional permits (above the maximum surface spaces based on your Membership Level) will automatically be assigned in the best available garage, based on your June 20, 2013 Panther Club priority point rank. If you prefer your additional permits to be assigned in the garage closest to your surface lot, please submit a request, as described in the answer to Frequently Asked Question "How can I request a specific lot?", and we will make a reasonable effort to accommodate you.
WHERE WILL I PARK THIS YEAR?
The Panthers Ticket Office and Panther Club re-assigns the location of football parking passes every year. Timely requests for season parking permits will be considered and assigned in the following order:
- Panther Club members, based on June 20, 2013 Panther Club priority point rank.
- Non-members, after Panther Club members have been considered and assigned, by Order date
In addition, each purchaser must meet the minimum annual donation* per pass, as shown below, to qualify for a parking permit in a particular lot. Please note that meeting the minimum donation per pass does not guarantee a spot in that lot. Parking is then assigned to Panther Club members based on Panther Club priority point rank (as of June 20, 2013). Parking assignments are not guaranteed to be in the same lot from year-to-year and may change annually based on availability and member priority points.
ORDER OF LOT ASSIGNMENTS
The chart below illustrates the assignment order for 2013 Pitt football season parking and the estimated Panther Club Priority Points needed for each lot.
Priority point totals as of June 20, 2013 will be used. Your current Priority Point total can be found at the top of your Football Season Ticket Application or by clicking here and logging into your online account. A Panther Club member would have to meet the minimum annual donation (per pass) and have the requisite number of Panther Club Priority Points to qualify for a given lot.
The Priority Point totals shown in the second column of the chart above are estimated point requirements for each lot. Actual point requirements may vary. The information contained in the chart is just an estimate and is subject to change.
*Contributions made for donor-based seating count toward contributions for parking.
Fans requesting accessible season parking must be season ticket holders and are required to provide proof of need annually for accessible parking (for example, a copy of state-issued accessible placard). For Panther Club members, timely requests for accessible parking permits will be considered and parking assigned based on Panther Club priority point rank as of June 20, 2013. After such requests from Panther Club members have been considered and parking assigned, timely requests from non-members will be considered and accessible season parking assigned by order date. Based on availability, single-game accessible parking may be available for purchase on game day. For more information, please call 1-800-643-PITT (7488).

WHY SHOULD I PURCHASE 2013 SEASON PARKING?
Purchasing a season parking pass guarantees you parking on the North Shore for all of the Panthers home games. The parking will be located on the North Shore and within walking distance to Heinz Field. Parking in stadium lots is all sold on a season basis. Single game parking will likely be Downtown or further away.
SHOULD I SUBMIT A REQUEST EACH YEAR?
Yes-- any parking requests (specific lots, group parking, accessible parking) need to be made each year. You can do so by writing on your paper ticket application, in the space provided on the online renewal webpage, by mailing a separate letter to the Panthers Ticket Office (which must be received no later than June 20, 2013), or by calling the Panthers Ticket Office prior to June 20, 2013. Requests do not carry over from year-to-year.
HOW CAN I REQUEST A SPECIFIC LOT?
All parking is re-assigned each year. If you prefer a certain lot or area, we encourage you to make a request with the Panthers Ticket Office - and we will make a reasonable attempt to accommodate you. You may do so by writing on your paper ticket application, in the space provided on the online renewal webpage, by mailing a separate letter to the Panthers Ticket Office (which must be received no later than June 20, 2013), or by calling the Panthers Ticket Office prior to June 20, 2013. It is also encouraged that you list more than one preference, in case of unavailability. Please note, all eligibility and processing requirements apply.
HOW CAN MY FRIENDS AND I PARK AS A GROUP?
In order to have your parking assigned in a group, we ask that all requests are coordinated together - and we will make a reasonable attempt to accommodate you. Each person in your group should include the following information when making the request (which may be made as described in the answer to Frequently Asked Question "How can I request a specific lot?"):
- Name (that is listed on application) for each person in the
- Customer Number for each person in the group (located
on the top left of your Football Ticket Application)
- Any parking lot requests
Please remember that group parking is assigned based on the average Panther Club priority point total of the group. This is calculated by adding the Panther Club Priority Point total of all members of the group, and then dividing by the total number of members in the group. All group members must individually qualify for the per pass donation requirements for the assigned lot. Requests for group parking from non-members will be considered and assigned, after Panther Club members have been considered and assigned, using an average order date for the group. Please note: To the extent parking is assigned on a group basis, it will only result in each member of the group receiving a season parking pass for the same lot/garage as other members of the group. It does not ensure that members of the group will be able to park in adjacent or contiguous, or in any particular, parking space or spaces within the assigned lot/garage.
IF I MEET THE MINIMUM PER PASS DONATION REQUIREMENT FOR A LOT, DOES THAT GUARANTEE ME A PASS IN THAT LOT?
No, all parking is assigned to Panther Club members by Panther Club priority point rank. Meeting the minimum donation requirement, alone, does not guarantee you a permit for a lot.
WHEN IS MY DONATION DUE TO SATISFY MY PER PASS DONATION?
All donations to the Panther Club must be made by June 20, 2013.
HOW DO I MAXIMIZE PANTHER CLUB PRIORITY POINTS?
Panther Club priority point ranks are calculated twice a year, and the June 20, 2013 date will be used to assign 2013 football season parking. All gifts should be made to the Panther Club Athletic Scholarship Fund before this date.
If you are looking to increase your Panther Club Priority Points, you may consider making an additional gift to the Panther Club (1 point per $50). To make a gift, please contact the Panther Club at 412-648-8889.
WHAT ARE SOME OTHER OPTIONS IF I DO NOT PURCHASE A SEASON PARKING PASS?
If you choose not to purchase a season parking pass with the Panthers, you may consider parking at: Rivers Casino, Station Square/Gateway Clipper Fleet, PPG Public Parking, or using the Port Authority/North Shore Connector.
