All parking lots on the U of A campus are currently in the process of being renumbered to align with an updated parking lot identification system. The updated system divides the campus into regions, with lots organized in numerical order based on their physical location and proximity to each other, making it easier to understand where lots are located across campus.

"In the past, lots were numbered as parking was added, removed and adjusted on campus, causing some inconsistencies in regard to their actual physical location," said Gary Smith, transit and parking director. "This update will help us achieve better organization and a more intuitive parking lot identification system for the U of A."

The university's interactive Campus Map has been updated with the new parking lot numbering system. Users can select "parking" from the filter menu of the map to see parking lot locations and numbers across campus. The parking map PDF has also been updated showing both old and new lot numbers.

New physical signage is currently being installed at each lot and garage entrance, with updated designs that are easier to read. All signage is expected to be updated by July 1.

"We realize that some lot numbers have become well known over the years, and it will take time to become accustomed to these changes," Smith said. "We want to thank all members of our campus community in advance for their flexibility and understanding in the short term as we work to ease the process of learning our parking lots for years to come."

Resident Reserved parking zone numbers are also being updated to better reflect the area of campus they cover. The updates establish resident reserved parking areas for on-campus students while helping clarify enforcement standards.

Eligibility for parking in lots across campus will not be affected by the new numbers.

Parking Permits Available July 1

Faculty/staff permits for the upcoming academic year can be purchased or renewed online starting July 1. Permits must be purchased or renewed by July 31.

Any questions related to the update can be directed to the Transit and Parking office at 479-575-7275 or parking@uark.edu.
