As you know, our continued growth puts significant pressure on our parking capacity. In an effort to address this problem, the university has developed a new student parking lot south of the Hal Wing Track, Lot L14, that has 450 additional parking stalls. However, we still anticipate significant parking and traffic congestion for the first few weeks of the school year. Here are some suggestions that may help to lessen the impact of parking issues early in the semester.
- If driving, allow extra time to arrive on campus and to find a parking spot. It is much easier to beat the traffic and find parking spaces if you arrive early.
- If possible, take the bus or ride your bike. Students and employees are encouraged to find alternative transportation to campus during the first two weeks. Check the UTA website at Rideuta.com to find a bus route that will get you to campus with less traffic/parking hassle.
- Try to avoid driving on campus drive around the north side of campus, by the Sorensen Center and LDS Institute. This area temporarily has a crosswalk that will be very crowded due to the construction on campus. Be careful and mindful of others.
- Notice that the parking lots have a new numbering system. All lots on the west side of campus will be numbered L1, L2, L3, etc. (The” L” stands for Lakeside.) Lots on the east side of campus will begin with the letter “M” (Mountainside).
Again, we all need to work together to keep traffic and parking congestion to a minimum during the first couple of weeks of school. Do not hesitate to contact John Brewer at x8320, if you have any questions.MAPS
We have moved to a permit-less system which will use your license plate as your permit identification. Each student may register two cars to their permit, but only one of those vehicles is allowed on campus at a given time. Vehicles without license plate numbers will need to come to the parking office to obtain a permit. To avoid citations and waiting in lines, come to parking services, or order online, before the semester starts so that your parking needs are already handled before classes start.
Parking Services offers various services to the UVU community in addition to issuing permits and enforcing parking regulations, please visit our Additional Services page for more information
