Expect campus parking and streets to close Super Bowl Sunday

UT Arlington classes will be held as scheduled during the week leading up to Super Bowl XLV on Sunday, Feb. 6. A rumor of any class cancellations is, perhaps, wishful thinking, but in fact pure fiction.

Here are the most recent details about the relatively minimal impact the national event will have on the campus during Super Bowl weekend.

The Maverick Activities Center will be closed Sunday, Feb. 6.

Also on Sunday, some parking lots on the west side of campus will be closed as UT Arlington accommodates production equipment and personnel for the Super Bowl event.

Parking lot closures that start at 7 a.m. Sunday are:

  • Lot 33 east and west, on UTA Boulevard, north of the Maverick Activities Center.

  • Lot 30 on Greek Row Drive

  • Lot F-9 at Davis Hall

Additionally, Nedderman Drive between UTA Boulevard and Cooper Street will be closed beginning at 9 a.m. Sunday.

  • Vehicles parked in or adjacent to Nedderman Drive after 9 a.m. will be towed at owner’s expense.

  • Residents of Cooper Chase and Forest Glen apartments will be permitted to exit, but upon return will have to enter Lot F-7 off of Cooper Street.

  • Trinity House access is allowed from Summit Avenue or Davis Drive at Greek Row Drive.

  • Access will not be granted to:

               Architecture Building meter parking,

               Fine Arts Building turnaround, and

               Texas Hall fire lane, metered parking, and turnaround.

The Arlington Convention and Visitor’s Bureau has invited student-run to broadcast from the bureau’s satellite center during Super Bowl Week, Jan. 31-Feb. 4.

Radio students will be at The 50 Yard Line, located at Richard Greene Linear Park, which will host broadcast media from around the country.

“This is an extraordinary opportunity,” says Andrew Clark, broadcast sequence coordinator in the Department of Communication. “Our students will gain experience working alongside other media professionals and outlets from around the country.”

In addition to the student broadcasts, a dozen more students from the broadcast sequence will serve as volunteers in the satellite center and at special events sponsored by the CVB.
