Winter Break Student Parking & Transportation Updates

Beginning December 11 at 7am until Jan 23 at 7am, vehicles with yellow permits may park in red-permitted lots and roadways, provided that the signs do not say “Red permits only AT ALL TIMES.” (ie the Hepburn and Roudebush lots).

Leaving your car here over winter break?
Student vehicles with a valid parking permit (blue or yellow) may leave their cars in the west Millett, Ditmer or Chestnut Fields lots over the winter break and J-term.
Please consult the parking map or call the Campus Services Center if you are unsure of where to park over break.

Garage vehicle storage also available over winter
If you wish to leave your car in a covered garage for Winter Break & Winter Term, spaces will be available in the North parking garage (by the Engineering Building). If you do not have a garage permit you may purchase this option with or without a yellow permit for $160 for the winter break/term. Please reply to this email to have this access added to your ID card (you may also call or stop by the Campus Services Center.) If you already have a garage permit you do not need to purchase this additional access.

Loading and Unloading: How to use the vehicle log-in policy for move out
If you need to park near your residence hall at a time when you ordinarily would not be allowed to park there, you may utilize the log-in policy below to load or unload your vehicle to avoid being fined. A valid permit is required to utilize the log-in procedure. Vehicles that park illegally in restricted areas, service drives, yellow zones and loading zones may be cited.

  • To use the log-in policy, park in a legal space near your building and immediately email with your name and the location where you are parked. You will be granted 20 minutes to load/unload your vehicle from the time you send the email. If you receive a parking violation during the time you are logged in, call or email the Campus Services Center with the ticket number and we will waive it. Students may use this procedure up to 4 times per semester
