The beginning of the semester is a busy time on campus, especially with students moving into their residence halls. Move-In creates a lot of extra traffic on campus and parking can become both congested and confusing for most. In order to help with move-in; Transportation Services will establish temporary one-hour loading and unloading zones in close proximity to the residence halls so that students may transfer their belongings with minimal inconvenience. To expedite the process, and to allow access to the maximum number of vehicles, vehicles left beyond the one-hour time limit will be subject to receive a citation and possible relocation.
If students choose not to use the loading and unloading zones, they should park in the designated lot for their permit. As a reminder parking is enforced at all times except when the university is officially closed. Parking permits are available for purchase in the Transportation Services office located on the ground level of the HSG parking garage on the corner of Highland Street and Avenue A. Transportation Services entrance door is located on Ave A facing the BLB.
For parents and students whose vehicle don’t have a permit you may park in hourly parking areas, HSG parking garage, or in remote parking lot 80 and use the Free Park and Ride shuttle service during move in.
Victory hall residents will have designated temporary one-hour loading and unloading zones established in close proximity to the building. The same procedures above are enforced for parking at Victory Hall during move in/out. Upon loading or unloading the vehicle needs to be moved into the lot designated on their permit. If the vehicle does not have a permit then you may park in the hourly parking areas or HSG parking garage and use the Free Park and Ride shuttle service provided. Remote parking in Lot 80 is also permitted providing there are available spaces.
Move-Out & Spring Move-In
During Spring Move-In & Move-Out, resident students may make use of the loading areas indicated on the map. After the 1-hour time limit, we ask that students move their vehicle out of the unloading zone and into the lot designated on their permit.
