Traffic update


Dear members of the university community:

To accommodate the unusually high traffic of students moving into MMC housing this fall, the Department of Parking and Transportation will close five campus parking lots this weekend.

All vehicles must be removed by 6 p.m. on Thursday, August 21, 2014 from the following parking lots:

  • Parking Lot 6 (south of Housing)
  • Parking Lot 8 (adjacent to the Recreation Center)
  • Parking Lot 12x (north of Panther Hall Parking)
  • Parking Lot 13 (adjacent to Towers Housing Parking)

For a campus map, click here.

The lots will re-open on Monday, August 25 at the start of the semester.

Alternate parking at MMC during the parking lot closure will be available in the Blue Parking Garage, Gold Parking Garage and Panther Garage, which will remain open over the weekend. Additional parking will also be available in Lot 5 (adjacent to the Wertheim Performing Arts Center), Lot 9 (adjacent to the Sanford and Dolores Ziff Education Building) and Lot 10 (behind the US Century Bank Arena).

Also note that Freshman Convocation will take place at the FIU Arena from 1-3:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 24, 2014. That day only, the Panther Garage and Lot 10 will be used exclusively for Freshman Convocation guests. Beginning that morning, the road in front of the FIU Arena (Southwest 113th Avenue/University Drive) will be closed.

This will be the first time on campus for many of our students and their families. Please be sure to give them a warm Panther welcome!
