Parking the first two weeks of Fall Semester

Students of UVU, as returning students may know, the first three weeks of Fall semester brings a large number of vehicles to the UVU campus. In order to help alleviate some of the parking congestion during the start of the semester, we have allocated some temporary overflow parking. There will be approximately 285 parking stalls located in the grass playing field to the east of Lot L10. The entrance to this temporary lot is located at the east end of L10. This overflow parking will require a purple permit (yellow is valid as well).

We have also added an overflow lot by the Health Professionals building at West Campus. This overflow lot will be primarily used to house the vehicles of the construction crews working on the Classroom Building and Student Life building projects. By moving the construction crews to this lot across the freeway, we are able to free up more space on campus for student parking.

Remember, during the first three weeks of the semester parking is tight on the main campus. We invite you to carpool, use public transportation, or other means to get to campus if at all possible. If you must drive a vehicle, please arrive early so that you are able to park and get to class as needed. Thanks, UVU Parking Services

Summer Construction Updates and Fire Alarm Tests

Wolverines, we’ve got a bunch of updates for you today on a number of different topics. We appreciate your patience as we work to make campus better!

Construction

Starting the week of July 8th through the week of July 29th, there will be construction in parking lots L6 and L8 which will affect the north end of the parking lot. There will also be construction on Campus Drive along these parking lots as well as the access road to L8, L5, L3 and L14. We apologize for the inconvenience, but the work will be done prior to the opening of Fall Semester.

Use of Sidewalks

Campus walkway safety is of great importance at UVU. In an effort to protect pedestrians on the campus sidewalks, we need to follow UVU policy 429 which refers to campus walkway safety.

Anyone using a motor vehicle, any vehicle propelled with a motor, 4 wheelers, golf carts etc., must have a sidewalk permit. These permits are issued by John Brewer, Director of Public Safety after a demonstrated need for the permit.

Motor vehicles cannot be parked on the sidewalks or plaza areas.

The speed limit on a sidewalk for those with a permit is 5 MPH.

Those in violation of this policy may be issued a citation by campus police or parking personnel.
Please help us keep our campus safe. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jim Michaelis, 8996
