Convocation Parking

During Convocation parking in C Lot is reserved for graduands and guests.

In general, expect parking to be in high demand and there to be increased traffic on the roadways. Please follow the directions of all traffic control staff. As always, during Convocation we recommend you take alternative transportation if possible. 

"Lot Full" scenarios in the Outdoor parking lots

Outdoor lots C and sometimes B occasionally reach "lot full" status, especially at the beginning of a semester. During the first few weeks of fall classes, you can expect increased congestion on the roadways and in the parking lots.

Please drive with care and allow extra time to park and arrive at your classes/offices.

Note that Outdoor Permits are valid in any of B Lot, C Lot, and Discovery P3; if you find one of those lots full, please proceed to one of the other lots within which your permit is valid. 

In the meantime, Parking Services is:

1) Continuing to monitor occupancy within the lots.

2) Working with Facilities Services to create additional spaces within the lots.

In general, and especially during the first few weeks of classes:

1) If you arrive after 10:30AM C Lot is likely full so proceed to one of the other Outdoor lots (B Lot or Discovery P3) rather than circling within C Lot.

2) The Outdoor lot of Discovery P3 always has a significant number of free spaces. Try this lot to determine if it is actually closer to your place of work/study than parking at the end of B Lot.
