UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Fall 2012 parking/driving update

Do you drive to campus? Here’s some things you may want to know, as the Fall 2012 semester begins:

  • The small 3-South parking lot behind the Oakland Deck has been closed. It will be used as a construction staging area as the Pedestrian Underpass is built under the railway. Additionally, tree work and utility work associated with the project will result in the temporary closing of the Oakland/Forest intersection later this semester. That intersection is expected to remain closed until sometime during the Spring semester.
  • If you are a member of the UNCG Carpool Club, you’ll soon enjoy priority parking spaces. Priority spaces will be reserved until 10 a.m. each day for vehicles with a carpool permit. The signage for special parking spaces will be in place very soon.
  • Those driving a lower-emission vehicle will also have priority parking spaces – in a pilot program that includes Lot 1 near Jefferson Suites as well as spaces on Gray Drive and West Drive. Want to see if your vehicle is considered lower-emission? See the LEED MY 2000–2012 Low Emission Vehicles listing at the greencars.org web page, a part of the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy web site.

These “priority parking spaces” programs are part of the university’s sustainability efforts. Our university’s goal is to be carbon-neutral by the year 2050.
