Ramona Avenue Parking Lot Closure
May 4, 2006 will be the last day of the Spring 2006 semester that the Ramona Avenue Parking lot will be open for use. The Ramona Avenue Parking Lot has served as the overflow parking site to ease the shortage of parking spaces on the main campus. The need to continue using Ramona Avenue for overflow parking no longer exists. Parking demand has diminished, and parking is available on campus throughout the entire school day. This is to advise the campus community that the Ramona Avenue Parking Lot will close on Thursday, May 4, 2006 for the remainder of the semester. The Ramona Avenue Parking Lot will reopen for Fall 2006.

Please continue to check the UTAPS website,, as information regarding campus parking will be updated as parking conditions change. If you have questions, please call 278-PARK or send email to
