Plan Ahead: Parking Alert

There are several events that will impact parking on South Campus this semester. To assist with your planning, the following is a summary of the dates and lot closures.

Thursday February 14, 2019 Lot M will be closed from 5:00 a.m. to noon. The School of Engineering is accepting delivery on a large new piece of equipment that will require the use of a crane. To accommodate the equipment and for safety reasons the lot and surrounding area will be closed off. Signs will be posted. This project is dependent on no or very low winds. Permit holders are encouraged to park in Anderson Parking Facility.

Monday February 18, 2019 Lot O will be closed for Admissions’ Visit Day from 5:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This prospective student event is very large because most high schools have the day off. Permit holders are encouraged to park in Anderson Parking Facility and parking is expected to be at a premium on campus from mid-morning to early afternoon. People are encouraged to use alternative forms of transportation because of the limited parking.

Saturday February 23, 2019 Lots M and O will be reserved for scholarship testing from 5:00 a.m. to noon for incoming first year students. Also, Tommie Overnight is occurring.

Thursday March 7, 2019 The Residence Life Admissions’ Event is for accepted students to look at residence hall options, to have final questions answered, and to commit with a deposit to attend St. Thomas in the fall. This is a key event in the admission process for admitted students. This is a very large event that begins in late afternoon and goes into early evening. Because of this, Lot M and Anderson Parking Facility will close for parking at 2:00 p.m. Permit parkers and those arriving for evening classes will be directed to other parking locations on campus. People are encouraged to use alternative forms of transportation because of the limited parking. More information will be out in the next couple of weeks.
