Principles for Parking & Shuttles
- Provide on-campus parking for anticipated growth in demand.
- Develop a parking plan that supports a highly walkable campus.
- Improve the efficiency of the campus shuttle system.
- Minimize the impact of parking on campus and community character.
- Seek to reduce the parking needs of future growth through transportation demand management techniques.
Plans in Progress
Replace the existing commuter and on-street parking as part of the Alexander Street/University Place Neighborhood Design. Use Lot 7 Garage to provide daytime and evening parking for the Center for Creative and Performing Arts.
Reassign parking from Lot 7 Garage to the new parking facility, especially for faculty, staff, and students whose destinations are within walking distance of the new facility.
Build a new parking facility east of Washington Road within walking distance of most commuter destinations. Set the new facility into the existing sloping grade to minimize its visual and environmental impact.
