Parking

As the University of North Dakota continues to grow and develop, parking for special events has become increasingly challenging. As you plan your trip to the Fritz to enjoy your favorite shows, some important tips to keep in mind include:

  • Come early. Leave yourself ample time to park and get into the auditorium. Parking staff is on-site one and one-half hours prior to the start of an event. The earlier you arrive, the better your parking options will be.
  • Carpool if necessary. The number of parking spaces at the Fritz is limited. The fewer cars competing for these spaces the better for everyone involved.
  • The Fritz will once again have preferred parking options available for purchase. Please inquire with the Box Office if you are interested in Friend of the Fritz parking.
