HUB Parking Deck

From Wednesday, Aug. 17, through Sunday, Aug. 21, the first bay on the ground floor (transponder only entrance) will be reserved for unloading only. Vehicles entering to unload will enter and exit through the transponder entrance at the lower level.

Due to the heavy traffic expected at the HUB Deck, Yellow C permit holders are asked to use the Eisenhower Deck Aug. 17 - 21.  Visitor parking will be very limited at the HUB Deck, so staff permit holders from other areas of campus who commonly visit the HUB or surrounding buildings during the day are asked to remain parked in assigned areas and use alternate transportation to get to the HUB.

After unloading, parents and students will be directed to move their vehicles to Lot 44 or Stadium West. The only exception will be those unloading at West Halls. They will also have the option of parking at the Nittany Deck or Lot Red A. The unloading voucher issued at the residence halls will be accepted to validate parking at these two locations. Beginning Friday afternoon, parents and students unloading in the South Halls, Pollock Halls, Eastview Terrace or Nittany Apartments areas will be also be directed to the Eisenhower Deck.
