“Permit-Free” Perimeter  Zones

To allow time to purchase and receive permits during the first week of classes, vehicles may park in the lots designated as Perimeter Lots (P5, P8, P9, P10, P12, P13, and P14 only) without a permit through January 23. Vehicles parked in these lots without a permit are still subject to, and may be ticketed for, violating all other parking rules and regulations. 

Jones Dining Hall Renovation

Jones Dining Hall was built in the 1970’s and the building infrastructure has outlived its usefulness and is no longer serviceable. Construction is expected to begin in December 2014 and the renovations are to be completed by fall 2016.
