Welcome Owls – 2016 Fall Semester
Move in was a success!
During that time we allowed vehicles to park in areas for the day to access residence halls with ease. We also allowed students to park in lots without a permit the first two weeks of the semester. We did these as a courtesy to you, to make the transition into the new semester much easier.
Beginning Tuesday, September 6th, we are resuming our normal parking routine and enforcement of all parking violations. Below we’ve outlined some important tips and reminders for you so you can avoid receiving a citation.
Commuter students: Park in blue lots. You may park in red lots between 6:00pm and 6:00am, unless otherwise posted. Do not park in lot 40 (PBSC) between 11:00pm and 6:00am.
Resident students: Park in green lots. You may park in blue and red lots between 6:00pm and 6:00am, unless otherwise posted. Do not park in lot 40 (PBSC) at any time.
We’ve also included a quick parking guide, noting the most common parking violations.
We have numerous resources and services available for the university community, all of which are available on our website at:
We are active on social media and post parking updates for parking, traffic advisories, lot closure info, and more. Be sure to follow us at:
We hope you find this information helpful.
Have a great semester!
