Parking Lot Closures During Orientation
In preparation for new student Orientation, the parking lot in front of the John K. Mullen of Denver Memorial Library will be closed from Tuesday, Aug. 24, at 5 p.m. through Monday, Aug. 30, to accommodate the tents in which orientation meals will be served.

In addition, the north end of the McMahon parking lot will be closed on Thursday, Aug. 26, starting at 7:30 a.m. to facilitate first-year student move-in to Centennial Village.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to park in lots away from the center of campus (behind O’Boyle Hall, next to Father O’Connell Hall, etc.). On Thursday, Aug. 26, all faculty and staff who have a current campus parking pass will be able to park in the underground parking pavilion beneath the Columbus School of Law.

For more information, contact the Office of the Dean of Students at 202-319-5619.

Faculty and Staff Parking Permits
Faculty and staff may now purchase their 2010-2011 parking permits. From Aug. 23 through Aug. 25, faculty and staff may purchase parking permits at the Edward J. Pryzbyla University Center, Room 321, where the Campus Transportation Management Office (CTMO) will be temporarily located. While the CTMO is at the Pryzbyla Center, the regular office in Leahy Hall will not be processing parking permits. On Monday, Aug. 30, the CTMO will reopen at Leahy Hall, Room 121, where faculty and staff can again purchase permits. Registrants must present a valid CUA ID and vehicle registration.  

Persons registering vehicles will be issued one permit (hangtag). Registrants who operate an alternate vehicle must transfer the permit between vehicles. Faculty permits are provided to full-time members of the faculty, as determined by the Office of the Provost. 

Employees are encouraged to use payroll deduction for their vehicle registration; this reduces the cost of administering the parking program. Part-time benefit eligible employees who will be employed for a full academic semester may be eligible for payroll deduction; eligibility will be determined at the time of registration. Employees choosing not to utilize payroll deduction or those who are not eligible to participate may pay for their permits via cash, check or credit card (VISA, MasterCard or Discover). 

For more information, contact the Department of Public Safety at 202-319-5111.
