Academic Lot Gates

The access gates at the Academic entrance parking lots A1, A2, A3 and A4 are now active.

When the entrance gate is in the down position you must scan your ID badge to open the gate. Do not attempt to follow a vehicle through the gates when they are active. You must stop, wait for the gate to return to the down position, then scan your ID badge to raise the entrance gate and proceed slowly.

At the exit lanes an ID badge scan is not required. The exit gate will open when your vehicle activates the in-ground loop detectors. Always proceed slowly, and watch for pedestrians and approaching traffic.

A valid permit or authorization by Parking, Transportation and Event Services is required to park in these lots. Vehicles without the proper permit or authorization will be subject to citations.

Please be cautious when travelling in this area.

Thank you.

New Names for Parking Lots

You’ve probably noticed the new wayfinding signs that have been installed around campus. Well, along with the new signs—the parking lots have been renamed. The lots now have a letter and number. The letter has to do with the closest entrance to or part of campus where the lot is located. For example, at the Main Entrance, M1 and M2 replace lots G and F, and the lower campus lots will start with “L.” The parking garage names will not be changing. Check the full list below for name changes.

Lot A/B A2

Campus Shuttles Offers App Enables Real Time Tracking of New Campus Shuttles

You may have noticed something different about the campus shuttles at UConn Health.

The buses have digital route and destination signs and are branded with the UConn Health logo. The drivers wear blue uniforms.

Less obvious, the buses also have GPS monitoring. And that enables a feature that’s new to UConn Health shuttle passengers.

We are excited to roll out a mobile phone app and desktop link that track the shuttles along their routes and display the wait time between shuttle stops.
