Getting Around Campus March 4-7
Senatorial debates, a best-selling author's lecture, America East championship tournaments, a Hartt musical performance, the International Festival, as well as regular classes and other events will make March 1-7 an exciting, event-filled week on campus.
All of these events will impact faculty, staff and student mobility and parking, so please practice patience and schedule more time than usual for getting to class or work.
Events that will increase traffic and/or impact parking are:
– Monday, March 1 and Tuesday, March 2: Democratic and Republican U.S. Senate debates, respectively, in Lincoln Theater from 6:45 p.m. to 8 p.m. All tickets to the debates on both days have been distributed and overflow viewing spaces has been booked, so heavier than usual traffic entering campus is expected.
– Wednesday, March 3: In preparation for the America East Men's and Women's basketball championships, on March 3 students parked in N lot must move their cars to other campus lots. Public Safety will tell students as they exit N lot which campus lots have spaces available. Lot N will remain unavailable for student parking until Monday, March 8.
– Thursday, March 4 through Sunday March 7: The America East Men's and Women's basketball championships at the Sports Center will bring thousands of additional people to campus.
Please consult this map for changes in campus traffic patterns and parking from Thursday, March 4, through Sunday, March 7.
– Drivers should utilize the new Mark Twain Drive entrance which is accessible from Albany Avenue or the main (stop light) entrance to enter campus.
– Road access between the Sports Center and Lot N will be blocked so cars will not be able to drive completely around the campus.
– Only cars with reserved-parking tags for the tournament or cars of faculty and staff who work in the Commons and Sports Center area will be allowed past lot K.
– Tournament general parking will be shared with the campus community in lots A, B and K.
– Lots L, M and N will be for tournament parking only.
– Games begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 4, at noon on Friday, March 5 and Saturday, March 6 and at 11 a.m. on Sunday, March 7.
From March 4 through 7:
– you can park in any legal, non-reserved parking space in any lot, not just the lot indicated on your hang tag.
– it may take longer than usual to find a parking space
– once you have a space, consider not moving your car for the rest of the day and walking or using the campus shuttle, which will be able to drive completely around campus
