Semester Break Parking and Bus Service

Parking During the Semester Break

During the break between the fall and spring semesters, demand for parking is greatly reduced. As a result, Transportation Services does not control many of the various campus parking areas for permits during portions of the break.

In general, employee lots remain on control for permits during the duration of the semester break, except for the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day (December 25 – January 1). The Kroger Field student periphery lots (Blue, Red, Greg Page Overflow and Soccer/Softball), as well as most student residential lots will not be controlled for permits during the break, with the exception of the Seminary area residential lots (R29 & R30), the Wildcat Coal Lodge lot (R17) and the German House area (R18). More specific permit control information is provided below.
