    Bus Information

    Parking at Ryan Field Lot D will be offered with bus service to Norris Center, at no cost to those who enroll for in-person attendance in one or more courses this quarter. The service will be contingent on the number of requests and utilization. If there is a low level of interest in the busing option, busing will NOT be offered. If there is sufficient interest in the bus service but actual use of the bus is low, the service may be terminated. Advanced notice of cancellation of bus service will be given. Any student requesting a parking pass will be advised two weeks prior to the start of classes as to whether the bus will be available. Those who are dependent on the bus will be able to obtain a course refund if the lack of bus service prevents them from attending in-person, unless they wish to access the course(s) remotely.

    Bus Service Instructions for In-Person Attendance

  • You must request the parking permit when you register online or in person at the box office. The parking permit will be mailed with your class entry card and must be hung from the rearview mirror with the printed side visible through the windshield. We strongly encourage carpools. Students attending per diem do not receive a parking permit and may not park in Ryan West Lot D. However, per diem students may ride the bus if they arrive at the lot by other means.
  • Parking is allowed in the north half of the University’s Ryan Field West Parking Lot D, located off Ashland Avenue just west of the stadium. Enter West Lot D at the north end of Ashland Avenue near the intersection with Isabella Street. This permit is not valid for any other University lot.
  • The bus will run between West Lot D and class locations on a schedule to be announced. Details of the schedule will be included with the mailing of registration materials and parking passes.

  • Handicap Parking at Ryan Field, Lot D: Students who have handicap license plates or placards are encouraged to park at Ryan Field West Lot D and take an Alumnae bus which delivers students to the door of Norris Center. If you plan to park at Lot D, please request a parking permit so that we can track the number of requests for the bus.
