A limited number of spaces may be reserved on-site on game day. We are able to accept all major credit/debit cards and cash (exact change is preferred).

Parking Zones

Everyone parking at Bama Wesley will park in one of five zones, either selected when you make your reservation or assigned by our team when you arrive. Please note that access to zone 4 likely involves clearing a curb. If you drive a low vehicle, we encourage you to park in zones 1 or 2. Bama Wesley is not responsible for damage which occurs to your vehicle, and it is your responsibility to notify our team if you do not believe you can safely park in your assigned zone.

Can’t make it to a game?

While you are not required to let us know if you can’t make it to a game for which you have a reservation, we appreciate it since it allows us to release the space for sale. Just shoot us an email at to let us know.

As You Arrive

As you arrive, please enter the parking lot from 5th Avenue and wait to be checked in by a member of our team regardless of which zone you will be parking in. If you will be parking in zones 4 or 5, we may direct you to circle the building and enter from the street.

At all times while you are at Bama Wesley, please ensure that your parking permit (sent by mail for season reservation holders, or issued when you check-in for single-game reservations) is clearly displayed from your rearview mirror. Vehicles not displaying a parking permit will be towed at owner’s expense.

Lot Hours

Bama Wesley’s lot will open at the earlier of 10am or 4 hours before kickoff.  For certain major games such as homecoming and the Iron Bowl, we may open earlier in which case we will notify those holding reservations for the game by email. If you need to arrive earlier, please email as early as possible and we will make every effort to accommodate you.

Zone Release

To ensure the most efficient use of our space, your space may be released if you are not checked in 45 minutes prior to kickoff. If you arrive after that time, we are unable to guarantee your space. If you encounter difficulties due to traffic or other factors while en route, please call (205) 517-8097 and we will hold your space until kickoff.  For more details, please see our Zone Release Policy.

Note that reservations in zones 1 and 2 as well as tailgating reservations will be held indefinitely. If a member of our team is not available to check you in, you are welcome to park in any space marked by an orange cone. Once you arrive, place the cone in front of or beside your vehicle and we will collect it following the game.

Road Closures

Please note that the University closes the streets surrounding Bama Wesley at least 3 hours before kickoff, and after that time you will be required to present your permit to access our property. For more details, visit our road closures page.

Sharing Permits

You are welcome to share your parking permit with someone else. To help expedite check-in, we just ask that you let us know if someone other than you will be using your permit by clicking here.
