As of today, Monday, November 16, the LeMarchant Place parking lot on South Street (Studley Campus) was intended to become a “pay and display” lot but due to issues with equipment installation that has now been delayed for one week. This week, November 16-20 the lot will remain open for General Permit parking at no additional charge. Starting next Monday, November 23, the lot will become “pay and display” from 7 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at a cost of $2.00 per hour. The 81-space lot has been created to address rising short-term parking needs on campus. Because of ongoing construction on the LeMarchant Mixed Use building, part of the lot will remain fenced. Meters have been removed from various sites around campus to create more General Permit parking spaces elsewhere. Parking is free in this lot in all non-reserved spots from 4:30 p.m. – 1:30 a.m. No overnight parking from 1:30 to 7:30 a.m.
