May 1, 2013 – This summer, construction on the Primary Children’s Medical Center Ambulatory Care Building will affect parking in the O-Zone Lot.  Jacobsen Construction will begin moving the perimeter fences on May 4th, taking the remainder of the stalls in the O-Zone. This phase is expected to be completed by the time fall semester classes start on August 26th, at which time the O-Zone stalls will be returned for use.

Starting in May and throughout the summer, O-Zone parking permit holders may park in the lots to the west of the O-Zone, including the Merrill Engineering lot. The O-Zone shuttle will continue to service the Merrill Engineering lot along Central Campus Drive via Exploration Way (see map to the right). A shuttle stop will also be added on Central Campus Drive at the Merrill Engineering lot.

Please be advised that the O-Zone parking lot continues to be a temporary parking solution at the University of Utah. As we learn what changes will be made to the O-Zone space after summer 2013, we will communicate with you and provide updates on the Facilities Management website,

Please consider these changes when planning for the future; you may want to seek other parking or commuting options. Commuter Services staff is available to discuss parking alternatives and public transportation options.

We continue to look for new and creative ways to manage parking issues. If you have questions, concerns or ideas for improving parking, please contact Commuter Services at or call 801-581-6415.
