Construction of the new parking garage located to the west of our building continues. Due to the construction, the parking lot to the west of the building has been eliminated and the number of parking spaces in the south parking lot has been significantly reduced. Needless to say, the luxury of parking close to our office as in the past will change until the new parking structure is built.
As a result of the construction, the Extension Administration Office reception front desk will be open from 7:30 am – 4:30 pm on a regular basis until the parking garage is built. Our hope is that this will help University Square staff find a parking space in the lot south of our building early in the morning before students arrive for class.
Please review the Campus Parking Map: http://parking.colostate.edu/maps/mapside.pdf
LOADING/UNLOADING AT UNIVERSITY SQUARE: Signage will be displayed in the near future off of Lake Street in the south parking lot on where you can load/unload at University Square. Please follow signage and DO NOT load/unload off of College Avenue. In the meantime, all loading and unloading must occur from the south parking lot near the Handicapped Parking area. Again – DO NOT attempt to load/unload from College Ave. It would be helpful for us to know in advance if you have a load/unload need. Please contact Sharal Foss (970-491-6281) and she can direct you to the most appropriate location.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are coming to campus (specifically to our building, University Square) the parking lot to the south of our building (lot #575) is small and fills up quickly in the early morning hours. A daily permit dispenser machine is located in the SE corner the lot. Daily permits are available for all visitors, as well as CSU staff, faculty, and students for $10.00 each.
Alternate parking options near the University Square building for visitors:
- Parking lot #440 located north of the Jack Christiansen Memorial Field. This lot has visitor parking (meter/pay-by-plate parking at the rate of $1.50/hour).
- Lake Street Parking Garage located on the SE corner of Lake Street and Center Avenue. This parking garage has visitor parking (meter/pay-by-plate parking at the rate of $1.50/hour). You can ride the Around the Horn Shuttle from the Lake Street Parking Garage to the bus stop located on the north side of the Facilities Services South building and then you can walk across the railroad tracks to University Square.
Please call Sharal Foss, our receptionist, at 970-491-6281 if you have questions regarding parking when coming to campus. Please be patient during the next several months while construction of the parking garage takes place.
