Spectator Parking

The Times Union Center manages a parking garage--easily accessible via Market St.--behind and attached to the Times Union Center. The garage has a $10 all-day event rate and a clearance of 6'6". No re-entry permitted.

Additional parking lots and garages are located near to the Times Union Center. See the online map.

Metered street parking is also generally available, especially nights and weekends. Street parking is free after 6pm on weekdays and on weekends.

Skater Entrance and Bus Parking

Buses and private cars may drop off skaters at the skater’s entrance, located behind the Times Union Center. Enter on Market Street and exit to Beaver Street.

Bus parking information will be made available in early January 2020. 


The arena serves typical arena fare. More specific information on concessions will be available in early December.

While the Times Union Center offers gluten-free menu options, it is not a gluten-free facility. The facility is also not a nut-free facility.  Although no nuts or items containing nuts (such as peanut M&Ms) will be sold during the championships, these items are sold at other times. As such, TUC cannot guarantee that menu items are 100% free of gluten or nuts as there is always a possibility of trace amounts crossing over from other kitchen areas. Please consider this when ordering.
