Editor's note: The closing of the parking lot south of Cessna Stadium will close permanently Sunday, June 9. Go to www.wichita.edu/parking for updates.
The parking lot south of Cessna Stadium will close Sunday, June 9, so construction can begin on a new residence hall at Wichita State University.
The lot will no longer be available for parking. Some of the handicapped-accessible spaces will be relocated to Alumni Drive.
The loss of 800 parking spaces will be offset somewhat with the addition of 400 parking spaces along 21st Street east of Corbin Education Center. Those spaces are scheduled to be available in mid- to late-July.
Even with the parking lot going offline, there should be ample parking for students attending summer school at Wichita State.
To accommodate the loss of handicapped-accessible parking spaces in the lot going offline, several spaces will be re-assigned as handicapped-accessible parking spaces adjacent to Morrison Hall. This work will be completed during the summer.
In the meantime, there should be adequate handicapped-accessible parking dispersed throughout campus, and additional handicapped-accessible stalls will be created in these areas with re-striping.
University officials continue to work on plans to help alleviate the demand for on-campus parking for students, faculty and staff when fall classes begin in August.
Faculty, staff, students and visitors are encouraged to go to wichita.edu/parking for the latest information on where parking is available, a map and helpful tips.
