Construction Advisory: New Parking Access

Due to the construction of new Science and Technology Center II (STC II) building at University of the Sciences, traffic patterns for loop road and parking have changed:

  • The 45th Street entrance to loop road will be closed to through traffic.
  • Entering and exiting campus for the Wilson Hall and Athletic/Recreation Center (ARC) lots is from 42nd Street only.
  • Some parking restrictions will be in place for the ARC rear parking lot to accommodate construction equipment.

Please follow all directional signage and traffic flow patterns for your safety. We expect this new pattern to continue throughout the spring 2014 semester.
