Construction Alert

Ridge Walk North Living and Learning Neighborhood

Starting from Monday, June 19, 2023 the fencing will be installed, rendering the parking lot behind MCC inaccessible. This parking lot is scheduled for demolition and will no longer be available for parking in the future. However, Scholars Garage, Pangea, and Hopkins will remain available as parking options.

During the summer, if you plan to visit the campus, we recommend parking in the Scholars Parking Garage, which is located below the new Public Engagement building. It is a convenient option for parking your vehicle.

Here is a diagram illustrating the construction of a fencing system.
