Parking at Orientation

Parking is available for a fee ($) at the Euclid Auto Park located adjacent to the UMC.  Orientation sells discounted parking passes for this lot throughout the day.  From this parking lot there is a very short walk to the UMC for orientation check-in and morning presentations.

Free parking is available in the RG Zone in Lots 436/494 on the southeast corner of Colorado Ave and Regent Drive, directly east of the Engineering Center.  A parking permit for this lot is included in the very useful planning guide that students download after making a reservation for orientation.  Be sure to place this on your dashboard before you leave your car.  From this parking lot there is a 20 minute walk to orientation check-in and morning presentations.

 

Residence Hall Check-In

Residence halls open for new students attending the January orientation on Wednesday, January 8 at 10:00 a.m.. Because students can not miss mandatory orientation presentations we recommend that you check-in to your residence hall during lunch or that evening after orientation has finished for the day.  If you have received a residence hall room assignment, please report to the front desk of your assigned hall to check in.

 

Campus Dining Centers

Dining Centers in C4C, Darley and Sewall begin serving meals to students with a campus meal plan on Wednesday, January 8 at 11:00 a.m.  All other dining center operations will open and operate normal hours on Thursday, January 9.
