Middle Tennessee State University will host the TSSAA High School Basketball Tournament on March 6th -9th (Spring Break Week) and March 13th-16th. The tournament will cause several changes in parking and traffic patterns on the MTSU campus:

  • The Greenland Drive parking lot will be reserved for TSSAA ticket holders and there will be a $5 charge to park in that lot. Students and faculty who use the Greenland Drive lot are encouraged to find alternative parking around campus during this busy time.
  • MTSU’s East Main Street and Rutherford Boulevard entrances will be the most convenient campus entry points during the tournament. The arm gate on the east end of the Cope building will be in the up position during tournaments to allow access to Midgett Lot and Old Main Circle.
  • Team buses will enter campus from Middle TN Blvd. at Faulkinberry Drive. Faulkinberry Drive will be CLOSED to campus traffic from Middle TN Blvd. to Normal Way. Normal Way will also be closed to accommodate the parking of all team buses. No campus parking or road access will be available in these areas.
  • The Raider Xpress Shuttle Service will run its normal schedule during TSSAA tournaments, with the exception of the Green Route. The Green Route will be not service the Greenland Dr. Lot. An additional bus will be added to the Red Route from 9:00 am-3:00 pm on Wednesday, March 13 and Thursday, Mach 14to accommodate an increase in ridership.

All other scheduled events during this time will be allowed to park (first come, first serve) in any of the non-pay lots based on availability.

Please be advised that the construction taking place on Middle Tennessee Blvd. could potentially cause/create traffic delays. With the expected increase in traffic, please allow for extra time to reach your destination. The traffic plan is designed to maximize the use of the perimeter lots and support Raider Xpress efficiency.

The TSSAA Tournaments attract thousands of prospective students, their families, alumni and other University supporters on campus for these high school events. We appreciate your cooperation and assistance in helping to make our visitors feel welcomed on campus.
