Move-in Parking

Due to the large influx of students moving in to the residence halls, all parking areas in close proximity to these locations must be available exclusively for this activity. Because many of these lots are considered faculty/staff parking, the Office of Business Affairs has arranged for those displaced from their normal parking areas to park in the Rivers Street Parking Deck at no charge. Your cooperation during this extremely stressful operation is appreciated!
