Shuttles & Parking

We recognize that parking on campus is challenging. River Campus parking will be particularly limited on Friday; whenever possible, we encourage you to use shuttles from hotels and various University lots. If you drive to campus, parking staff and signage will direct you to open lots.

Is parking available?

River Campus parking is available but limited, especially when classes are in session on Friday. Shuttle service is provided to and from campus lots. If you plan to come to campus Thursday evening, parking is open where legal spaces are available.

Is handicap parking available?

Yes. Once you arrive on campus, parking staff can direct you to the closest available handicap parking space. You must have a government-issued handicap parking sticker in order to utilize these spaces. More information will be provided this fall to those requesting handicap parking on their registration form.

Is transportation provided during the weekend?

Limited shuttle service is provided to and from many hotels listed on this Web site Shuttles will also be provided between select off-campus events, hotels, and the River Campus. Golf carts are available on the River Campus to assist guests who need assistance. Transportation is not available from the airport to campus.
