Beginning with the upcoming Spring ’14 semester, S-Lot Ext. (located across Grant Egbert Blvd opposite S-Lot) will be available for both Student and Employee parking (Red & Blue). Due to an increase need for employee parking on the south side of campus and after examining the availability of spaces in the surrounding lots outside of O-Blue, the Parking Policy Committee has approved S-Lot Ext. to be designated as both Student and Employee parking.
Also as a reminder, parking regulations are in effect 24/7 including Fire Lanes, Handicap Spaces, Reserved Spaces, and No Parking Zones.
If you have any questions, please contact the Parking Services office at (607) 274-3756 or via email at Parking@Ithaca.edu.
