Lot Q Improvements - Located by Bates Residence and Alumni House

Parking Services is currently working on installing automation equipment in Lot Q. Current monthly permit holders will be asked to hand in their hang tags in exchange for a transponder to access the lot once parking gates are installed. Automation will provide improved transponder access for monthly permit holders and visitors and reduce occurrences of illegal parking.

This lot is currently only provides a short term visitor parking option, once parking gates are installed there will be long term parking options similar to those available in Main Campus Lots I, B, C, D, Underground Stadium etc. Visitors entering from the west side of campus would benefit from these longer-term parking options. The lot would also improve parking options for special events held on the west side of campus. In addition, automation will improve interzone, shift and evening parking permit access for transponder holders.

Installation of automation equipment will take place tentatively in Spring 2018. Additional detailed information regarding specific installation and transponder pick up dates will be circulated closer to the actual installation date.

Thank you
