The South Stadium Parking Structure provides the University of Arizona improved parking amenties for daily users as well as those attending special events.

This multi-story parking structure provides a unique opportunity for the University of Arizona to connect and serve the expanded Student Recreation Center, multi-purpose recreational field, and Arizona stadium. The architectural design considered site-specific guidelines, programming, and visioning provided by the University and is responsive to the north end-zone revisions at Arizona Stadium.

It was extremely important to address the needs of the surrounding community.  Through feedback provided during community workshops, DFDG was able to create a structure sensitive to the residents’ needs.  The structure features five levels, each three bays wide. The top level is two bays wide due to sensitive building massing in response to a nearby residential area. The exterior features brick and block walls with high arches to signify entrances and exits.

Of particular importance was the amount of time it took to exit the facility after football games.  The ramping system was designed to allow for the complete exiting of the facility within about thirty minutes.
