Parking Information and Shuttle Bus Service

The campus parking restrictions are lifted during weekends beginning on Friday at 4 pm and ending Sunday at 6 pm. Parking will be permitted in all parking areas during this time.   
Based on the layout of the day, the following parking options are recommended:

  1. The Parking Garage (GPS: 451 Great Hill Drive) is highly recommended as it is most central to activities throughout the day
  2. Visitors attending the Alumni Brunch may opt to park on west campus in the lots behind Harrington Hall (Harrington Lot) or next to the Dana Mohler-Faria Science Center (West Lot).
  3. Visitors just attending the football game are encouraged to park in the Hooper Lot (Note: Swenson Lot will be closed).

A shuttle bus servicing parking areas on both east and west campus will run throughout the day. Shuttle stops will include locations closest to scheduled events including East Campus Commons and parking garage, School Street and Park Avenue on West Campus and Swenson Field.
