WPI Police

Residential students will be moving back to campus next week (August 22 to 30, 2020) in a process much different from previous years. In order to manage building capacity and social distancing, we’re spreading move-in over several days, and will have students check in at the Gateway Park area before directing them to their specific residence halls on campus for their assigned move-in time.

That means parking will be impacted for a few days and in a few areas. Please see below and, if you’re working on campus, please plan ahead.

The Gateway Park North Lot, South Lot, Gateway West Visitor Lot, first level of the Gateway Garage, Park Avenue Garage (section identified), Einhorn Lot, Schussler Lot, Institute Lot, Dean Street Lot and Hackfeld Lot (section identified) will be closed to employees and students from Saturday through Monday, August 22 to 24, and again Wednesday through Sunday, August 26 to 30.

The following parking lots will be available:

Boynton St. Lot - (employees, student commuters & visitors)

Hackfeld Lot (section), - (employees, residential, & commuter students)

22 Dean St. Lot (commuters only)

East Hall Garage (employees only)

West St. Lot - (employees, student commuters & visitors)

Higgins Lot – (employees, student commuters & visitors) After 11:00AM

Lancaster Lot - (residential students, employees with established access)
