  • Safe Ride will continue normal operations through Thursday, May 12, and will not be available during the summer months.
  • Beginning Monday, May 16, any vehicle with a current parking permit (except the commuter permit) will have access to resident reserved parking areas. Those lots are indicated in red on the campus parking map.
