Time to make way for more parking!

With the start of Phase II of the expansion and redesign project at the current Student Recreation Complex underway, contractors for the project will be staging at the north end of the 2 hour parking lot. Due to contract and job site liability, the parking spots at the end of the two hour lot will be unavailable throughout the duration of the expansion and redesign project.
