In conjunction with construction of the new Southern Student Housing complex, Varner Drive, as well as Grizzly Lane north of the P-32 parking structure, will be closed beginning at 11 p.m. on Wednesday, July 13.
Campus commuters interested in using the P-32 parking structure will still be able to access it from both Library Drive and Grizzly Lane, and those interested in using the P-34 and P-36 lots located south of the Engineering Center will be able to access them from Library Drive.
The P-24 lot, located to the southwest of Varner Hall, will remain open during construction. Temporary entrances have been installed on the west side of the lot from P-36 and on the east side from P-26.
The road closures outlined above will remain in effect throughout the 2016-17 and 2017-18 academic years, with reopening anticipated with completion of the new housing facility prior to the fall of 2018.
Faculty, staff and students accustomed to using the affected roadways are encouraged to plan in advance to use alternate routes as needed.
Campus parking information, including notices of closures such as this one, can always be found on the Oakland University Police Department’s Parking Services webpage.
The Oakland University Police Department appreciates the patience and cooperation of the campus community during major University events.
