Plan parking, routes carefully for Friday move-in
Move-in for new incoming and transfer students is on Friday (Aug. 20), and will require closing some parking lots and modification of normal traffic patterns to accommodate this year’s large freshman class.
Following are parking guidelines for faculty and staff who will need to be on campus that day.
Employees who work in the northwest portion of campus (e.g., Mathematical Sciences, Technology, College Park, etc.) are advised that lots 3, H, and 5 will be unavailable. Further, Merry Avenue will be restricted to one-way traffic (westbound only) beginning at 7 a.m. It is recommended that individuals enter campus off Poe Road and North College Drive and park in the lots north of Technology (lots S, TE, TC, TS, TN, W and M). Parking will be available in Lot R; however, the lot will be difficult to access. Vehicles will need to enter campus at the Visitor Center on Alumni Drive and proceed along with orange/green move-in routes around the football stadium to get to Merry.
Those who work in the west/southwest portion of campus (e.g., Administration, Williams, Union, McFall, etc.) are advised that lots E, 3, J, 11, and A will be unavailable. Further, Wooster Street continues to be closed between the railroad tracks and downtown. For those coming from the south, Parking Services highly recommends avoiding Wooster and suggests parking in the lots surrounding the Tucker Center on Troup Avenue (lots P, PX, 9 and 15). For everyone else, it is recommended that they enter campus along Poe Road to Enterprise Street and park in Lots 4 /4A. Parking will be available in lots G and 21; however, heavy traffic on Wooster and the low lot capacity do not make those recommended locations.
Those who work in the northeast/east portion of campus (e.g., Jerome Library, Business Administration, Moore Musical Arts, etc.) are advised that lots N, K, 2, 5 and 12 will be unavailable. Further, Merry Avenue will be restricted to one-way traffic (westbound only) beginning at 7 a.m. It is recommended that drivers enter campus at the Visitor Center on Alumni Drive, follow the orange/green move-in routes to Merry and park in lots 10, 16, C and 1. Because move-in begins at 8 a.m., it is recommended that faculty and staff in this area arrive before that time to avoid being stuck in traffic.
