Students begin to move out of residence

More than 3,000 students will move out of residence for the week of Friday April 21 to Friday April 28.

On these days it will be very busy on the roadways near the residences in both the north and west quads, especially between 12:00Noon – 7:00p.m.

University staff who travel the roadway and/or park in lot E (opposite McKay Hall, the Commons Building), lot G (opposite Woodstock and Hedden Halls), in front of Les Prince Hall and lot H (adjacent to Les Prince Hall), Lot Q (opposite Bates Residence) and Lot I will find these areas particularly congested.

To avoid the bustle of cars pulling in and out of the parking spots and the general increase in pedestrian and vehicular traffic in this area, staff are strongly encouraged to park in the underground stadium parking lot.  For these dates, transponder holders for zones E, G, and H will be permitted to park underground. Exam parking for students will also be the underground lot.

Move-out parking attendants wearing orange safety vests will be working shifts in both the north and west quads during peak move out periods, April 22-28.

These student attendants will ensure that visiting cars do not block roadways, fire lanes, or pedestrian walkways.

Pedestrians in the west quad should also note that cars will be allowed to drive to Moulton, Matthews, and Wallingford Halls along the emergency roadway north and east of Mary Keyes Residence and to stop in designated areas to load students and their belongings.

Again, student attendants will ensure that cars move safely in one direction only and do not block emergency vehicle access.

Parking and Security Services have assisted in the preparation of the move out plan to ensure that residence move out will run smoothly.
