The Center for Student Life (CSL) will soon be razed to make way for Founders Village building #4, which will include a wing for student services and recreation. Construction on building #3 is already underway.
Following demolition of the CSL, a construction fence will be installed, making the newly paved temporary walk (next to the PEC) the main exterior access point to campus from Lot I (next to the turf field). At this point in time there are no plans to close any roads during the course of the project.
Construction workers will be parking on the west end of the PEC, near the storage building. Construction staging will be next to the east detention pond, inside the fenced-off parking area, and in the construction parking area.
With construction changes, parking will be affected on main campus. A plan has been developed that will remain in effect for the rest of the year. A color-coded parking map has been created to make the process a little easier. The colors are broken-down by faculty, staff, and students by year and residence hall.
• Park where your permit allows you to. Visit the color-coded parking map for details.
• Utilize on-street parking and the Upland lot as needed. There is plenty of on-street parking on Greenway and St. Bernardine Streets. Those who have offices or classes at Upland may choose to park and ride the shuttle to main campus. Print the Shuttle Schedule for future use.
• Allow yourself time to park. It is likely that during the construction period, it may take a few extra minutes to find a spot — so plan accordingly.
• Freshmen resident students are reminded to park in either the Ken Grill or Angelica parking lots. (See Public Safety message below.)
All freshmen resident students who have registered a vehicle with the university are required to park in one of our two remote parking locations (Ken-Grill or Angelica Park) and to use the university’s shuttle and escort systems to travel between main campus and those locations. Spaces on public streets that surround the university are needed by our neighbors and commuter students.
