Parking

UCET attendees are asked to park in the Merrill Engineering Building parking lot on Central Campus Drive. A moratorium will be placed on this lot so that UCET attendees may park there for free without being ticketed. The lot has approximately 800 stalls. Signs and volunteers will be posted to guide you as you walk from the parking lot to the Union building. The normal campus shuttles will run from the parking lot to the Union regularly (every 20 minutes). UCET has also chartered a second shuttle that will run on a more frequent route between the Merrill Engineering parking lot, the Warnock Engineering Building, and the Union.

There is a pay parking lot adjacent to the Union. UCET attendees may choose to pay for parking in the Union Visitor Parking Lot, however UCET will not be validating parking in that lot.

Handicap parking spaces are located in front of the Union for those with a valid handicap parking tag or license plate. If the designated handicap parking spaces fill up, those with a valid handicap parking tag or license plate may park in the Union Visitor pay lot in front of the Union courtesy of UCET. (Please visit the UCET registration desk for parking validation in this case.)
