Electric scooter parking will be installed in locations throughout campus in the upcoming weeks.

According to an email sent to students Wednesday morning, seven new scooter parking spots will be available later this semester. 

Scooter parking spots will be located at the Student Recreation (REC) Center, Science II Building, McLane Hall, University Center, Library, Student Housing Atrium and North Gym.

“These racks are a secure option when used in conjunction with U-lock security devices,” said Debbie Adishian-Astone, vice president for administration and chief financial officer.

For students currently looking for secure locations to park their scooters, they can utilize “Bike Barn” locations located at the REC Center, Student Housing and Professional Human Services Building, according to Derek Brantley, parking and transportation manager, and Adishian-Astone. Student ID cards are required to access these areas.

Adishian-Astone also advised students to “be mindful” of pedestrians and their safety when navigating campus.

“We want everyone to be safe and we need those who are using wheeled devices to travel safely when on campus, at a slow speed,” she said.
