DUC Garage Painting: Sept 11 – Oct 1
Garage levels will alternately be closed due to painting. Not having these blocks of spaces available is causing the garage to fill faster than normal. Should you find the DUC garage full, please use these alternative options:

  • Zone 2 permit holders may use the Alumni House and Music Library parking lots, in addition to Wallace Garage.
  • Visitors may use Millbrook Garage, located on the north side of campus on Throop Drive.

Painting is expected to be completed by October 1. We do apologize for any inconvenience and we appreciate your cooperation.
