PARKING
For on-campus parking, parking permits are necessary for Friday; Saturday is free.
You also can park anywhere where there is a meter (and again Saturday will be free)
Permits will need to be picked up before hand at the Physics Building.
There are only a few loading zones around this building where you can park while
getting your pass , but this will be a necessary pain that we need to live with.
The permits will be good only for the University Ave. Garage. This is the closest lot to the Physics Building.
