Depot Campus: Shuttle & Parking Update

Parking Services & Transportation Services has renewed its commitment to provide a full complement of services to the Depot campus.

We are please report that regular shuttle service between the Storrs and Depot campuses was restored on Monday, Oct. 8 (map).

In advance of enforcement efforts that will begin in the 2019-20 academic year, parking permit signs were also installed in many Depot campus locations. Those signs will not be enforced until September 2019. We understand that some of the recently installed signs may need to be changed and additional signage may be required.

It is essential for departments and programs on the Depot to provide us with the information needed to insure that all parking areas are properly assigned.

If you have insights and information to share, please contact by email sent to parkingservices@uconn.edu as soon as possible.

We look forward to hearing from you!

NEW Shuttle Routes (Storrs): Monday, Oct. 8th

In response to student concerns and as result of the cooperative involvement our student leadership, the UConn (Storrs) shuttle service will follow new routes starting on Monday, October 8th.

Maps of the new routes along with additional details are available on the Transportation Services website.

We want to extend special thanks and appreciation to the student leaders who facilitated the feedback and provided the insights needed to implement these immediate changes. We look forward to continuing those collaborative efforts in the coming year.

Lot B: Late-night Commuter Parking

Bishop Center (rear lot | map) remains an Area 2 lot, with that permit type required to park on the lot between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays.  This change allows commuter students to park on this lot between 5 p.m. and 4 a.m. on weekdays, and anytime on the weekends.  As with the commuter student lots, all vehicles in the Bishop Center (rear) between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. on weekends must be moved by 4 a.m. Monday.

Commuter Parking ’till 4:00 a.m.

Students have expressed strong concerns about the fact that Parking Services policies define “overnight” as occurring between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.  Students have also said the overnight policy prohibits them from leaving their vehicles in Storrs commuter lots into the early morning hours. The most common issue raised to University officials was the fact that the Babbidge Library remains open until 2 a.m. on most nights of the week. As a result, students believed they risked being ticketed when they left their vehicles in a commuter lot until the library closed.

In response to these concerns, UConn has determined that effective immediately, permit parking regulations will NOT be enforced on commuter student lots between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. on weekdays or any time on weekends. 

The weekday enforcement of permit parking regulations on commuter student lots will begin at 4 a.m. each Monday.

More simply stated, all vehicles parked on student commuter lots between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. on weekends must be off those lots before 4 a.m. Monday.

Lot F: Move-in Parking Restriction

The “lower” section of Lot F (by North Eagleville Road) will be closed to permit parking starting Monday, August 20th through Sunday, August 26th in order to facilitate the move-in processes of students assigned to the North and Northwest campus residences.  The use of the permit parking capacity will be restored as soon as the move-in processes are complete.

Lot D: Move-in Parking Restriction

The upper (practice field side) of Lot D will be restricted to parking in order to its availability and use to facilitate the Garagius Suites move-in process on Saturday, August 25th.  The restricted capacity will reopen to permit parking as soon as those move in processes are complete.

Lot W: Move-in Parking Restrictions

The western section of Lot W will be reserved in order to allow its availability and use to facilitate the fall semester move-in processes for students assigned to the Towers residences on Friday, August 24, 2018.  The restrictions will be removed as soon as those processes are complete.

Lot 9 and Lot X: Move-in Parking Restrictions

Sections of Lot 9 and Lot X will be closed to parking in order to facilitate the fall semester move-in processes from Monday, August 20th through Sunday, August 26th.

These locations will be used to stage students moving into the University’s Hilltop residences.
