Lot 46 Temporarily Becomes Resident-Only for Early Voting

In order to accommodate the significant early voter turnout expected for the general election, the south side of Lot 46 (behind Gallucci Hall) will be used by staff from the Summit County Board of Elections through November 8th. Lot 46 will become a Resident-Only lot between October 12th and November 8th to make room for these additional vehicles. We ask that residents who normally park behind Gallucci Hall park in the spaces north of Gallucci Hall during this period, and avoid parking on the south side of the lot when feasible. Commuters will be able to utilize Lot 47 (Folk Hall), and everyone can use Lot 36 (the South Campus Parking Deck) throughout this time. Signage will be placed throughout the lot to advise drivers of these changes. Please contact Parking and Transportation services at 330-972-7213 with any questions.
