Some students who live in Towers 1 and 2 and park in Garage G will be required to move their vehicles to an alternate location by 7 a.m. Friday.

All floors of the east side of Garage G – the side nearest to the CFE Arena — will be unavailable for parking.

Garage F will close at 7 a.m. Friday. Vehicles left in Garage F or in the blocked portion of Garage G are subject to towing as of 7 a.m. Friday.

Students parked on the west side of Garage G will be unable to move their cars from noon to 9 p.m. due to the closure of West Plaza Drive. If you need to leave campus during that time, you should move your car to a different garage or lot before noon Friday.

Because garages C, D and H will be utilized for event parking, students and faculty and staff members are encouraged to park in a garage or lot on the other side of campus.

East Plaza Drive will close at 7 a.m. Friday.

West Plaza Drive and All Knight Study inside the CFE Arena will close at noon Friday.

Gemini Boulevard between East and West Plaza Drives will close at 1 p.m. Friday.

The roads and All Knight Study will reopen following the event, likely around 9 p.m.
