Info You Should Know

* Parking Changes

In the spring of 2012, adjustments to parking lot assignments were done to compensate for lost parking during the construction phase of the Fifth Third Men’s and Women’s Basketball Practice Facility.  With the conclusion of the construction approaching, the University has reassigned parking permitted lots effective Monday, September 3.

A new parking lot, Lot R, has been created on Olive Street for residential students. 

Lot N – corner of Rotherwood and Walnut – will resume as a Commuter Student lot only  (overflow for Green Permits is allowed).   Residential students should remove their cars by Monday, September 3 at 7:00 a.m. and should utilize the new parking lot, Lot R, as well as Lots G, O, P, and H.

Lot A behind the Schroeder Family School of Business will resume as a Faculty/Staff lot only.  Commuter students will no longer be allowed to park in this area.

Thank you to everyone for your patience during these times of transition.
