Parking Advisories 2017

Dahlonega Campus

Decks and Spaces

Parking Services has been busy over the summer adding new parking spaces, including the construction on a new parking deck and improving shuttle service to off-campus locations. 

The South Parking Deck, Lot 51 (next to Owen Hall and the new Convocation Center), for resident students only, will free up spaces in Lot 30 and Lot 49.

Commuter students are encouraged to utilize the Recreation Center Parking Deck (Lot 14), Newton Oakes (Lot 16), behind Memorial Hall (Lot 19), Sunset Drive (Lot 30) and behind the Library Technology Center (Lot 49). 

Shuttle Services

Please note that there has been a few changes to the Shuttle service.   Certain stops will be suspended off the shuttle route.  The stops being suspended are the ballfield lots off Barlow Road, Rogers Hall/Dining Hall, NG Suites, Bellamy Trail, and the Library Technology Center.

Beginning Fall Semester, there will be one shuttle bus making the continuous loop from Owen Hall, Dunlap Hall/Barnes Hall, and the Health & Science Building. This shuttle runs from 8:30-5:00 (Monday-Thursday) and 8:30-2:00 (Friday).  A second shuttle bus will be added to this route by the first of October.

New for this year, there will be one shuttle that will make a continuous loop to off-campus locations.  The route begins at The Bellamy (Club House), and continues on to Hawks Nest, Fine Arts Complex (Hamp Mill Rd.) and the Health & Science Building.  This shuttle runs from 8:30-6:00 (Monday-Thursday) and 8:30-2:00 (Friday).  

Faculty/Staff Spaces

Parking Services has added 98 new Faculty/Staff parking spaces.  They are located in Lots 3, 5, 14, 30, 32, 36 and 38. These new parking spaces include the addition of 24/7 Faculty/Staff parking spaces.  The 24/7 parking spaces will be strictly enforced. 

Visitor Parking

Another new policy to be implemented is for our visitors.  For any visitors to the campus, they will not be required to obtain a parking pass before parking.   All visitors are asked to park in lots/parking spaces that are designated for Visitors only.   

Gainesville Campus

Enrollment for the Gainesville campus will be at an all-time high for Fall Semester 2017.  It looks like student population will bypass 8,000.  Even though this is good news for the university, it adds to the parking problem that already exists. 

Parking Lots and Spaces

Parking Services has been busy over the summer adding new parking spaces, creating better access to the campus and will start a new program to assist in student parking. 

In order to take the stress out of finding a place to park on the Gainesville campus, Parking Services has added two HOV parking lots (LOT N, behind the music building and LOT U, near the Nesbitt Building).  By carpooling (at least two students sharing a ride), students will have Premium parking.  Students are encouraged to utilize this new program and enjoy the rewards of convenience and conversation.

30 parking spaces for students have been added.  19 parallel spaces are now available on Campus Drive.  Additionally, 11 gravel spaces have been created by Lot E.  Besides parking spaces for students, 60 more Faculty/Staff (F/S) have been added around campus (Lots: A, K, M, N and S).

Shuttle Services

Please note that there has been a few changes to the Shuttle Route.  Two shuttle stops have been added; Hugh Mills Gym/Library on campus and The Preserve at Tumbling Creek off campus.  The Shuttle stop at Lot P has been moved to increase usage.   As a reminder, the following are the stops in order of route; Shuttle Lot, The Columns apartments, Student Center, Nesbitt, Hugh Mills Gym, Continuing Education-Lot P and The Preserve at Tumbling Creek (one bus only will go to this stop).  

Notable Changes

Parking services has added a new entrance and an exit to Thurmon Tanner Parkway in Lot S.  This will avoid the around-a-bout and the red light, making it a clear quick exit.

Lot O now includes a large visitor section.

In the upcoming Spring Semester, parking will be expanded through the Lanier Tech project.  Keep in mind, the exact work will depend on limitations of locations, green space and funds. 

Parking Services has worked hard this year to make the changes necessary for better access, increased parking spaces and to find solutions to improve parking on the Gainesville campus.  Parking Services is committed to providing the best services at the lowest fee possible.
