IUPUI Plans For Super Bowl

The upcoming Super Bowl held in Lucas Oil Stadium has caused an intense amount of hysteria through the IUPUI campus. Where will we park? How will we navigate campus with all of the traffic? Are classes being held? Will my department be closed? Well fear not, the IUPUI Division of Finance and Administration has devised a comprehensive plan to help everyone enjoy the festivities and allow campus to run smoothly.

Parking
IUPUI has assigned 3900 parking spaces for Super Bowl parking. IUPUI Super Bowl lots will be in effect on Jan. 28 and 29 and Feb. 3 through 5, but you are encouraged to purchase your permit in advance. No decal/permit parking will be allowed on Super Bowl lots during these days, and no visitors will be allowed on lots other than Super Bowl lots. The lots will be located on the east side of campus, this includes lots 72, 83, 85, 92, (every surface lot east of Blackford Street) and the Gateway and Blackford Street garages. Thus entering campus from the west side is highly encouraged.

All Super Bowl parking lots costs $25 per day, those with IUPUI decals/permits included. The Super Bowl parking permit includes parking and Shuttle Service from the lots to the Super Bowl Village/Experience on Jan. 28, 29, Feb. 3, and 4 with everyone in the vehicle receiving an armband. This does not include game day.

During those four dates of the Shuttle Service decal/permit holders may park in other lots and pay $5 to use the Shuttle Service to enter Super Bowl Village/Experience.

Monday through Thursday, between the two weekends, Parking Enforcement will be enhanced greatly and will not allow any Super Bowl Parking in an effort to keep class schedule disruption at a minimum.

Classes
All classes will be in session unless otherwise instructed by your professors. However, on Feb. 4 and 5 classes will be cancelled, with exception to some clinical classes. It is strongly recommended that students, staff and faculty enter campus from the west end due to Super Bowl traffic and Super Bowl parking on the east end of campus.

Departments
The following list was provided by the DFA as suggestions for organizing flexible work arrangements.
• Flex start/stop times to avoid periods of heavy traffic/activity.
• Work a compressed work week, i.e., four 10-hour days, three 12-hour days and one 4-hour day.
• Work from an alternate location (another campus location or home).
• Work a different schedule within the same work week, e.g., Sunday through Thursday rather than Monday through Friday.

The following list was provided by the DFA to address alternatives for time-off regarding staff employees:
• Utilize one of the flexible work arrangements listed above, with supervisory approval.
• Use accrued paid-time-off/vacation benefits.
• Use accrued compensatory time.
• As a one-time exception, staff employees may use income protection/PTO sick bank if all other options (e.g. vacation time, PTO, flexible scheduling, variable scheduling, or alternative workweeks) are not available.
• Instead of using paid-time-off benefits, request an absence without pay and with paid-time-off benefit accrual (AWB), with supervisory approval.
