Parking Changes March 27-28

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

 On Saturday, March 28, the University will host its 80th Anniversary Gala, which will require some temporary changes in parking availability starting Friday, March 27.

All on-street parking located between Echols Hall, Woods Science Building and the Ticket Center, will close Friday, March 27, at 5 p.m.  In addition to this area, parking lots 11 (between Echols Hall  and Spartan Suites) and 5 (across from the Nursing & General Education Building) will also be closed and will remain closed until Sunday, March 29, at 7 a.m. We ask that all decal holders park in the next closest available parking lots. The next closest lot designated for open parking is Lot 34, which is located directly behind University Police Headquarters.

These changes have been implemented in the interest of safety for students and gala participants and due to the anticipated increase in traffic on campus for the University’s festivities.

If you have questions or concerns regarding these changes, contact Parking Services at 823-2211.
