Important Information About Upcoming Parking Changes

The University will close several parking areas on the north and south sides of campus at the end of fall semester, as a result of construction projects that are scheduled to begin in the next few weeks. The following parking areas will be closed, effective Dec. 17:  South Rose reserved parking lot, SEC reserved parking lot, and street parking on Seventh Avenue between Woods Quad and Houser and Hardaway halls.

These changes are necessary to meet construction and parking needs on campus in keeping with the campus master plan approved by the board of trustees in November. The plan calls for residential expansion and infrastructure improvements in the Barnwell area on the south side of campus, and Ferguson Center expansion and a thermal piping project on the north side of campus.

Alternative parking options will be offered to accommodate these changes. While employees who park in these areas have received information about parking options, these changes may also impact parking for employees who do not park in one of these directly impacted areas.
