Due to the ongoing construction on campus and an increase in students living in residence halls, Parking Services has issued several changes in parking regulations that affect both students living in residence halls and commuters.
Because of the construction of the sorority houses and the fourth Honors Living-Learning Community (HLLC) residence hall, students living in Honors, STEM and ROTC recently lost some of their parking.
To compensate, Parking Services has reserved the lot at Aggie Road and Driver Street for students living in those residence halls.
These lots were previously reserved for students living off campus.
Additional commuter parking spaces have been added to Aggie Road between University Loop and Driver Street.
Commuters have also lost some parking spaces on Caraway Road, adjacent to Collegiate Park, which is now reserved parking for students living at North Park Quads (NPQ) and Red Wolf Den (RWD).
Vera Forrest, Public Relations Manager for Parking Services, said the spaces have been reserved for residents because of the continued increase of students living in NPQ and RWD.
These parking adjustments will be in effect at least until the completion of the construction projects.
Some adjustments, such as the new parallel parking spaces on Aggie Road, will remain after the projects have been completed.
Where is the best place to park?
For residents, the best place to park is at your residence hall in assigned parking. Being in commuter, faculty or visitor spaces will result in a citation.
For commuters it is important to pay attention to signs posted stating which parking spaces are reserved specifically for students living off-campus and paying for appropriate time if parking in the parking deck.
It is important for residents and commuters to read any emails received about alterations in parking regulations on campus.
