Construction on a temporary gravel parking lot at the corner of Whitney Avenue and 10th Street began this week. This RED level lot will open prior to Great Move-In Day, Aug. 24. It is expected to remain through the fall semester.

The lot is between Willow and Whitney avenues, from 9th Street to University Drive. Entrances will be on the north side of 9th Street and the corner of Whitney Avenue and 10th Street.

This temporary lot will help provide parking during the completion of the new West Side Parking Lot, located west of Willow Avenue. The west side lot is expected to be completed by the end of October.
