To make move-in days as efficient as possible, students should move their vehicles to the Oak Street parking area once belongings have been unloaded.
During move-in days, all faculty and staff reserved parking spaces (excluding handicap spaces) on main campus, including the Nevins Hall lot and surrounding lots on Georgia Ave., will be designated for student parking from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Faculty and staff are requested to park in the following parking lots: Admissions, Music Annex North (formerly Alumni House), University Center, and the Oak Street parking deck and surface lot.
Shuttle buses will run from the Oak Street lot and other lots off main campus to the shuttle stop on Patterson Street (main entrance to campus). This change will allow ample parking and easy flow of traffic for students moving into the residence halls.
