  • Student & Faculty Parking Advisory - Wed., Oct. 15 - 6 days ago | 377 views

    Posted: 10/14/14 12:04 PM

    Student and Faculty Parking Advisory:

    Wednesday, October 15 – Cintas Major Event Parking Notification  

    On Wednesday, October 15 there is a major event taking place in the Cintas Center at 7:00pm. Expect some delays if planning on parking in the lots near Cintas Center and Cohen Center, as we expect a large number of campus visitors that night. The lots will be more congested, so arrive earlier for class if possible.

    • There are no restrictions (that said, there will be on Xavier basketball game nights later this year), but there will be game day visitors directed into C-2 and C-3 lots where space allows, so this area will be more congested.
    • The lower section of the C-2 lot will be held exclusively for students.
    • The lots on the south corner of Dana Avenue and St. Francis Xavier Way, as well as the C-4 / Norwood Plaza Lot will be available to students on this game night.

    Thank you for your cooperation.
