As construction of the Integrative Genomics Building begins in the next few weeks, only a few dozen parking spaces in the Bevatron lot will remain open. This map shows other parking areas that typically are not fully occupied. The commute website offers information on alternative transportation. More>

With increased parking demand and shrinking supply, staff should consider carpooling, Lab shuttles and bicycling as commute options. Go here for information on the Carpool Pilot Program, including guidelines, map, and FAQs. Vehicles in “Carpool Only” spaces must display two parking permits, or risk citation. See parking enforcement and penalties info here (Section D.4).
