Cintas Center and Special Events

Men's Basketball

During men's home basketball games, the numbered spaces in Cohen, Husman, and in front of the Cintas Center must be vacated 2 hours before game time. It is recommended that all Faculty/Staff plan ahead and park in alternate faculty/staff lots on weekdays when a game is scheduled. Students (both undergraduate and graduate) should avoid all "C" parking lots near to the Cintas Center on these game nights.

It is strongly recommended that students who have classes on these evenings park in the C5/R3 reserved area in the Norwood Plaza lot OR the D, G, and H lots off of Dana and Woodburn Avenues. Please allow additional time to arrive to your classes on these evenings. Students may also park in the South lot on the West Side of campus.

Other Events

Special events do take place in the Cintas Center year round. Please be aware that parking spaces, especially the C2 and C3 lots closer to the Schiff Family Conference Center, will be limited from time to time throughout a given day and sometimes on short notice. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding during these times.

Parking for People with Disabilities

Parking spaces reserved for those with disabilities are located closest to the handicap-accessible doors at each building. Handicap-accessible entrances are clearly marked on building entrances. Please review the Xavier Campus map for further details on availability. 


The fine for a handicap violation is $100 or more, depending on the severity. Any vehicles parked in handicap spaces on campus without a valid pass should be reported to Parking Services at x1050 or after business hours and evenings by contacting the Xavier Police at x2000.
