Traffic Advisory  - (Starting on February 14, 2022)

Please be advised traffic on campus roads and parking lots have the potential to become heavily impacted for the first several weeks of the semester. Parking lots nearest the core of the campus will fill as early as 8AM Monday thru Thursday. Detour routes may occur after 10AM. In preparation for potential traffic delays, we recommend you plan for an additional 45 minutes to your daily commute. When you arrive on campus, we also recommend you follow the direction of LED sign boards and traffic direction officers to find the nearest available parking space.
