The University will temporarily close some parking areas to accommodate events planned for Sept. 5. On that day, the University will kick off its comprehensive approach to wellbeing, called Thrive, and celebrate groundbreaking ceremonies for the Sutton Center at historic W. N. Reynolds Gymnasium and the McCreary Field House.
Parking lots to be affected include F, U and U2:
Lot F: A limited number of spaces will be available to faculty and staff in Lot F on Thursday, Sept. 4 until 5 p.m. Lot F will be closed all day on Friday, Sept. 5. The lot is located on Wingate Road between the football practice field and the Facilities Management and Campus Services buildings.
Lots U and U2: Lot U will be partially closed on Sept. 5 and Lot U2 will be completely closed on that day. Both lots are near Palmer and Piccolo residence halls.
Additional Parking Lot Closure
Thursday and Friday, Sept. 4 and 5 – Parking Lot B will be closed for event parking.
Parking Lot A and Wake Forest Rd. in front of the Chapel have routine openings on a daily basis.
Parking Lot J, located behind Collins and South Residence Halls, is available for faculty, staff and general parking. This lot is the least utilized on campus and should provide parking on this day as well.
Shuttle service will be available on Sept. 5 to assist any faculty and staff who opt to park in a University lot off Long Drive, across from Winston-Salem First Church. A shuttle will run from that lot to the southern area of campus from 7 to 9 a.m. and again from 4 to 6 p.m.
