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.

Help! I Can’t Find a Parking Spot!

I can’t find any parking spots!

FAU Garage 1

The Beginning of a New Semester!

The beginning of a new semester or academic year brings with it the challenge of finding the perfect parking spot. Everything takes a little longer on campus during the first weeks of a new semester! Take comfort that after a few weeks the hectic search will stabilize as students and faculty get used to the schedules, routines and the locations that are available at different times during the day.

During the first few weeks of each semester we try to live tweet as the garages and lots fill. Throughout the year we also try to retweet any local traffic issues that might affect our Owls.

Digital Counter and Signs.

Watch for signs on the front of the garages and DO NOT PULL IN IF THE SIGN SAYS FULL. Garage 3 (by the stadium) has a digital counter that shows available spaces.


Alternate Entrances.

3 entrances to FAU from Glades Rd

Three (3) entrances to FAU from Glades Rd.


There are 5 entrances to FAU.

  1. Three (3) entrances off Glades Rd.
  2. Spanish River through the Research Center
  3. The 20th Street entrance from Federal Hwy (between Glades and Spanish River).


Allow extra time.

Surprisingly there really is plenty of parking spots on campus. However, they cannot all be right next to our classes, therefore everyone must allow extra time to walk or take a shuttle from the outer lots.

Adjusting your arrival time on campus may make a difference in the competition you face for a parking space.


Know your options. FAU Parking Google Map

As with all large Universities, everyone wants to park in the central campus lots. Keep in mind that these lots (Lots 1, 4, 7, 16, 25, 28) usually fill first. If you are arriving after 8am it will be an exercise in futility to drive around trying to get one of these spots.

Each semester is a little different, however historically Tuesdays and Thursdays are the busiest days. The parking garages 1 and 3 are usually full by 10:00 am  and Garage 2 by 12:30 pm at the latest. So if you are arriving on campus later than this it is usually wise to head to the outer lots. (Lots 5, 12, & 13), as these lots are rarely ever filled.

Familiarize yourself with the map, so you know where to find the outer lots when you need them. It takes far less time to walk from Lot 5, then it does to drive aimlessly around in traffic looking for a lucky spot.

Park once.

This is good advice no matter what time of year. If you need to be at various locations on campus throughout the day, leave your car where you parked it and either walk or jump on Owl Express to get there. It’s also good for the environment. (Possibly your waistline too 😉 )
