Winter Lot Closures

With the low volumes of vehicles on main campus, many parking lots have been closed completely or reduced in size for the winter season.  Snow clearing will not be done in these areas.

The sections of closure within a lot or the entrance of the completely closed lots are marked with concrete barriers and signage.  Here is the list of fully closed lots and the alternatives for parking in the area:

Lot 9 – alternative Lot 11- public lot, $8 flat rate

Lot 63 -alternative Lot 13 – reserved permit lot until 15:00 Monday to Friday, then public lot $8 flat rate

Lot 25 – alternative Lot 28 - reserved permit lot until 15:00 Monday to Friday, then public lot $8 flat rate

Lot 10, 11, 12 and 32 are fully operational, however the size of the lot has been reduced for the season.
