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.

Parking Guide

We have numerous resources and services available for the university community, all of which are available on our website at:

FAU will be closing at 1:00 p.m. on September 11, 2015.

 Game Day Traffic Flow Map

This closure is expected to generate significant traffic in a short period of time.  Normally the university empties over a period of time rather than all at once.
To ensure an orderly flow of traffic and to prevent significant delays, we will direct traffic to the nearest exit to campus.  This will help traffic flow by reducing cross traffic.  We ask that you cooperate with personnel directing traffic and follow their directions as you may be required to utilize a different exit than normal.  We also ask for your patience as it will take time to get all traffic off campus.  Those in the garages should remember there is restricted traffic flow and it will take more time than usual to exit.
We thank you in advance for your patience.

Lot 2 Reopened after Summer Improvements

Lot 2 Summer Renovations 2015

 

We were working hard this summer renovating Lot 2 near the E Engineering Building Bldg. 96.

Lot 2 reopened in time for the first day of Fall Classes. The lot was expanded to include 80 Blue Permit parking spots alongside its 220 Red Permit spots.

 

 

Lot 2 now has great wide lanes to make it easier to pull in and out of parking spaces.
