Move-in day for Gertrude Sellards Pearson (GSP) and Corbin Halls as well as Move-in day for Templin, Lewis, Hashinger, Ellsworth, Oswald, and Self Halls is a very busy time in which hundreds of families need vehicle access to very limited spaces.  In order to accommodate everyone, vehicles are only allowed to park in the residence hall lots for 20 minutes each on those days. Student Housing will contact residents before move-in day with the designated timeframe they should arrive based on their housing assignment.  All vehicles going to Daisy Hill residence halls will enter lot 300 from Petefish Drive (just off Crestline, south of Bob Billings Parkway) and follow the signs directing lines of traffic for the various hall destinations.  When a vehicle arrives at the designated residence hall, drivers will park as directed and stay in their vehicle, while a representative from housing will assist with the unloading of the vehicle. Once the vehicle is unloaded, it should proceed to lot 301 or 302 to park. Parking attendants will be on hand to direct cars that have unloaded to alternative lots.

This twenty-minute limit applies to vehicles with housing permits as well; those vehicles should be able to move back into the residence hall lots Friday, August 21.
