Parking & Transportation

If you are commuting, we encourage you to come to campus for Orientation in the same manner as you plan to commute during the year.
Parking

Garage Parking is covered during Orientation for students and families. If you are driving to Orientation you will enter the garage off of Avenue Louis Pasteur, pull up to the right-hand side gate and obtain a parking ticket; you will use the same ticket when you exit the garage. 

More information on setting up a parking account for commuter students is available on the commuter parking website.
