  • Students who submit requests and receive approval

Early Move-In Unloading Placards (before 8/11)

Print the early check-in unloading placard. Fill in the date and the residence hall/apartment you will be moving into. Placards are valid in reserved loading areas for one hour or in nearby permit spaces for two hours if reserved spaces are full. An unloading placard must be clearly displayed on the dashboard of the vehicle at all times. View the early check-in unloading areas map.

* Tram Service: Due to very limited parking, tram service will be available for Bowen and Metcalf residence halls only. The tram service will operate from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 10. from the Coliseum Parking Deck.  Follow the signs to access the deck from Cates Ave. Staff will be available to assist you.

Reserved spaces are for unloading only. Once you have completed your unloading, move your vehicle(s) to the areas designated for early check-in long term parking.
