The Pavilion Garage will become a fully reserved parking zone this summer starting on June 1st.  Hourly paid parking will no longer be permitted and all revenue and gate equipment will be removed.  All parking stalls will be sold by reserve permits available to both Faculty/Staff and non-residential students.  Current garage pass holders have been given the option to pre-reserve a new permit for the 2017-2018 academic year.  All other eligible parkers will be given the opportunity to purchase a dedicated reserved space when their group's permit classification goes on sale in July.  Faculty/Staff will be given two weeks to choose the Pavilion Garage permit prior to them being offered to students classified as commuters.   New permits will be $400 for the 2017-2018 academic year.  For more information and other details please visit

Temporary Campus Bus Route Changes - Summer 2017 Starting Monday May 15th

Due to construction and road closures around campus this summer:

  • the Green, Yellow and Yellow Express bus lines will only utilize the Student Union bus stop for pick up and drop offs
  • the construction of the new round-about at Chucky Mullins and Hill Drive will prevent all traffic from using that entrance to campus
  • the Green and Yellow express will divert to Jackson Avenue to bypass the road construction and will go to the Union
  • the South Transportation Hub at the Kennon Observatory will not have any service

Later this summer:

  • the Yellow Express is being renamed to the Hathorn Express and it and the Green Line will return to servicing the Kennon Observatory after the road construction issues have cleared
  • the Red and Blue lines will be modified before August and will also only stop at soon to be completed North Transportation Hub located in the new section of the Student Union

All American Drive is scheduled to remain closed.
