News and Announcements

Reminder: Alternate Parking Today for Freshman Move-In Day
Freshmen are scheduled to arrive on campus and move into housing today. This will have a significant impact on campus traffic flow and parking. Valentine Lot, all of Park Lot, and the entire length of Intercampus Lot will be needed for the move-in process. Employees who regularly park in these lots will need to park in the AAC Lot (formerly the River Road Lot) or the Wilson North Lot. Shuttle buses will be available from the AAC Lot from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Cars left in Park Lot will be towed to the far end of the lot. Parking maps are available. For more information, call the River Campus Parking Office at 275-3983.
