UNO Parking Update for the Week of Aug. 20
Omaha - Omaha - Parking at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) during the 2007-08 academic year will take some extra thought and planning as the campus goes through a period of construction and development. Classes start at UNO on Aug. 27.
Ongoing construction of additional student housing, a parking garage and road work on the southwest corner of the Dodge location campus has meant 300 fewer student stalls being available when compared to a year ago. Off-site (and free) parking at Crossroads Mall provides an option for students, faculty and staff, said Paul Kosel, assistant manager for campus security.
“No one needs to buy a parking sticker to use the shuttle bus service from Crossroads,” he said. “The buses come every 10 to 15 minutes and they drop people off at the high traffic points of campus. It’s an excellent way to approach parking this year.”
The Crossroads shuttle is available from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. A second shuttle route runs from the Dodge location to Pacific location campus from 6:30 a.m. until 10:30 p.m.
For people who want their vehicle on campus, arriving at UNO earlier than in years past and having patience is the best advice, Kosel said.
A website highlighting parking issues on campus has been created for the campus community and public. Go to www.unomaha.edu/parking.
