We anticipate some form of early staff release on Aug. 30. An official announcement should be made in early August.
Deans, vice presidents and department heads will be given the opportunity to request an exception to the posted parking maps for faculty, staff or graduate students.
Those who either teach a class, or have an essential job duty and must continue parking in the restricted lot or garage beyond the time the area must be cleared should contact their dean or department head.
For individuals for whom the dean, vice president or department head request an exception, a placard will be issued for either the assigned lot or garage, or one nearby the assigned lot or garage.
Priority for placards will be given to designees assigned to teach classes after the time posted for clearing the lot or garage.

RV’s can begin checking in to Lot 74 beginning at 3:30 Thursday afternoon and will be confined to the southern half of the lot.
They will be required to leave the southern half of the lot by 10am Friday.
Lot 74 permit holders will have normal access to the northern half of the lot on Friday and the southern half after 10am.
Historically, on Fridays the lots are less full, so we feel there will be plenty of room to make this plan work.
Lot 74 is the only area affected by overnight parking for the game. All other lots should be cleared out by Friday morning.
Customers with permits to park an RV may do so in the park to which they are assigned.
