Parking Alert for Tuesday 1/17/17

About a foot of snow fell on our campus this last week. Campus crews have been hard at work clearing snow from our parking lots, however, numerous piles of snow remain in all parking lots. Until the snow melts parking will be limited.
Commuters need to carpool, take Trimet, or use the Pioneer Express, if at all possible, to get to campus as parking will be limited throughout the week.

Shuttle Service for Monday 1/16/17 

The Pioneer Express will operate today (Martin Luther King Day) according to the Sunday schedule (10 am to 10 pm) with service to downtown and Burlingame Fred Meyer. Weekday service resumes on Tuesday 1/17/17 - any changes due to ice or weather conditions will be noted on this page immediately.


Parking permits are not required at this time. Permits will be required for Spring semester beginning on 1/17/17. Permits for spring term will be available for purchase online January 1st, 2017.
