Three Parking Lots to Close Due to Construction

June 20, 2019

Construction of the new Northwest Science Quadrant, a cornerstone of the Next Generation Connecticut program and a hallmark of the 2015 Campus Master Plan, is scheduled to begin in January 2020. The first phase of this major new project will include the Science I Building and a supplemental utility plant.

As a result of this construction, some parking lots will be closed and parking assignments for some additional permit holders will be changed. The changes are part of ongoing significant changes in parking arrangements for faculty, staff, and students.

Parking lots L, N, and X, which are located on the footprint of the new buildings, will permanently close in two phases by January.

Prior to the fall 2019 semester, all of Lot L will close (approximately 160 spaces for commuter students), and the upper section of Lot X will also close (approximately 300 spaces for Area 2 employees and commuter students).

Starting with the spring 2020 semester, the lower section of Lot X (approximately 360 spaces for commuter students) and Lot N (approximately 220 spaces for Area 2 employees) will both be closed.

The lower section of Lot F (approximately 250 spaces) will now accommodate Area 2 employee parking, instead of commuter students. Employees displaced from Lots N and X will be accommodated either in Lot F or in the North Garage. All available student garage permit parking will now be in the South Garage.

Lot K, a new lot with 700 spaces for commuter students that is located on Discovery Drive across from the Innovation Partnership Building, will be completed prior to the fall 2019 semester.

Lots C, K, and W will be the largest for commuter students, and permits for this group will be lot-specific in 2019-20. With the large number of commuter students parking in Lots C and K, there will be enhanced shuttle bus service to and from these parking locations, running every 15 minutes.
