Adjustments in parking are needed to prepare for construction of the new School of Social Work and the Smart Hospital building. Construction will last until January 2023.

The building site is at the northwest corner of Mitchell and West streets, which is the current student parking lot 47.

Lot 47 will close and ADA parking will move to faculty/staff lot 10 and be expanded through January 2021. Lot 10 also will accommodate construction trailers and parking.
