Nancy Smith, Field Operations Manager for Parking and Transportation Services reports that for the first two weeks of the semester (when parking is always in highest demand) has actually been a bit smoother than last year. “It seems that people have found their way around sooner, are arriving on campus earlier, and are taking the shuttle to get around campus instead of attempting to drive from one academic area to another, “ she said.
FINALLY - after two years of parking paucity, the new CRI deck will provide seven stories of badly needed spaces right after the Labor Day holiday.
CRI Deck is the largest deck on campus. Features include:
Friday August 31
Saturday September 1

Parking on campus is not at all like parking at the mall. At the mall, you can usually find a parking space within sight distance of the door you plan to enter. That's not generally the case on campus, where academic buildings are clustered in pedestrian-centric quads, residence halls are outside of that and parking decks and lots are along roads around the perimeter.
The new CRI Deck will not be open by the first day of class as hoped, despite the best efforts of all involved in the construction. Until a final inspection occurs and a certificate of occupancy is issued, parking at CRI campus will be very tight.
East Deck 1 has undergone an upgrade this summer. Entrances and exits have been reconfigured for efficiency, lighting has been improved, and the deck will no longer need an attendant.
By August 20, the entire deck will operate as a combined Faculty/Staff and Visitor area. All vehicles will access the deck using the entrance that was before reserved for visitors. Anyone entering the deck may park on any level they choose.
How it works for Faculty/Staff
If you haven’t seen the area around the highrises for a few months, prepare for a shocking change in the landscape. Tons of earth has been moved and hundreds of parking spaces are gone in preparation for new and better things to come, like a new deck, residence hall, and dining facility.
