|SOUTHEASTERN OUTLINES NEW PARKING AREAS
HAMMOND -- Southeastern Louisiana
University has developed several new permanent and temporary parking areas
for faculty, staff and students to accommodate changes brought on by construction
of new student housing.
“These changes should minimize
any impact that construction will have on parking,” said Brad O’Hara, vice
president for student and public affairs
The changes include:
· A new permanent parking lot
for faculty, staff and upperclass students has been developed in the area
between the Teacher Education Center and the Student Activity Center.
· Pine Street between Dakota
Street and McGehee Hall will be re-opened for faculty/staff parking.
· A new parking area for freshman
has been developed between the University Center and the Alumni Center.
The lot provides easy access to the University Ave. pedestrian underpass
connecting the north and south campuses.
· Temporary parking is available
at the Old Rugby Field east of Taylor Hall for upperclassman and residents
of Taylor and Livingston halls. This area can be accessed from General
· Upperclassmen and residents
of Lee Hall can access a temporary parking lot in the area between the
University Police Department and Cefalu Coliseum on Virginia Avenue.
O’Hara said that students who live
on-campus will be required to park in the areas designated for their residence
halls between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
“As the new residential halls become
available in 2005, the temporary areas will be removed to be replaced by
new, permanent parking areas located adjacent to the new facilities,” he
