Campus construction brings parking changes for spring semester

The start of 2018 brings many changes to Reinhardt’s campus, including new parking requirements due to new building construction and renovations. All changes are currently in effect.

The Gordy Dining Center renovation has begun and the parking lot nearest the facility is closed. Construction crews have had to use parking at the Hubbard, Blue and Gold Residence Halls, leading to changes in parking locations and designated lots.

Commuter students have four parking options:

  • Brown Athletic Center gym and its adjacent gravel lot
  • North Cherokee Church of Christ, located at the corner of Highways 108 an 140
  • Bartow Street lot, located directly across from Burgess Administration Building; and,
  • Falany Performing Arts Center.

Residential students living at Hubbard Blue and Gold have four parking options:

  • The “Gold” lot behind the building;
  • Fincher Visual Arts Building, other than in spaces marked “Reserved”;
  • East/West Apartments; and,
  • Funk Heritage Center.

Additional parking information:

Please remember the current policy allows for only three parking citations each academic year. After the third citation, your vehicle is subject to being impounded and your parking permit revoked.
