As Dr. Michelle Patrick is inaugurated as Robert Morris’s ninth president and students celebrate homecoming, campus police are implimenting a number of parking restrictions and road closures.

The Gazebo parking lot will be closed until next Tuesday. Employees and students are not permitted to park in the upper or lower UPMC lots beginning Thursday night at midnight.

Starting at noon on Friday, Massey Way will be closed from the entrance of the Patrick Henry parking lot to the intersection of Concord Way. The roadway behind Washington Hall will also be closed to through traffic. The roads will reopen on Saturday morning.

At 12:30 p.m. on Friday, the RMU shuttle stop will be relocated to the entrance of the Patrick Henry lot. The stop will return to its original location by the Gazebo on Saturday morning.

The parking spaces next to the shuttle stop near the Gazebo will be off-limits on Thursday at 6 a.m. It will remain off-limits until the equipment placed in that area is removed.

In an email sent to students, Chief of Police Jeff James advised that any vehicles parked in the restricted areas will be towed at the owner’s expense.

The inauguration, homecoming dance, football game and the Earth, Wind & Fire concert will make it a “weekend to remember” at RMU. More information can be found on RMU Sentry Media and on Revolution.
