Helping Memorial Campus Employees with Parking During Renovations

With parking renovations underway in the Employee Garage on our Memorial Campus, a new Parking Information webpage on OurNet is a great resource to find helpful tips including shuttle schedules, seniority parking waitlist and regular updates on renovation plans. Did you know that carpool parking is offered on both University and Memorial Campuses? Not only is it easier to get parking, it’s also green for our environment. Kudos to the nurses on Memorial Campus for their idea to have parking information available to employees on OurNet. To stay up to date on parking, check out the page on OurNet. For more information, contact the Parking Office at 508-334-6546.
