Overnight parking is not allowed and will result in a parking ticket. Commuter parking permits can be obtained at Campus Police.
Dining options available to campus commuters include Valentine Dining Hall in the Edwards Student Center, Einstein Bros. Bagels in the Arnow Campus Center, and two a la carte dining options - one in Wolfe Hall and another in the Glow Lounge in the Winslow Academic Center.
