Campus Parking to Be Restricted on Pre-Halloween Weekend
Due to Halloween landing on a Monday this year, on-campus parking will be basically restricted to current permit holders between 5 p.m. and 5 a.m. for three nights, beginning on Oct. 28.
However, starting at Friday noon, Oct. 28, and ending Tuesday at 8 a.m., Nov. 1, graduate and undergraduate students living in Isla Vista can leave their cars in a well-lighted, fenced parking area adjacent to Storke Field if they have special, free permits, Transportation & Parking Service officials have announced.
Holders of valid parking permits A, S, and C, as well as R, G, B, or D need do nothing extra to have access to campus parking during the designated times. UCSB students without one of the above permits must apply for a free Halloween permit online <www.tps.ucsb.edu
>. For those students without existing accounts, a new one must be created for the Halloween permit: Short-term night and weekend permits (lock-in fee permits) will not be honored during these three nights, said T&PS officials.
Automatic ticket dispensers will be temporarily out of service the nights of Oct. 28, 29, and 30, in order to limit outsider parking at UCSB, Donna Carpenter, acting vice chancellor, administrative services, announced in a campuswide memo.
The restrictions are designed to deny outside visitors easy access to I.V. parties from campus parking spaces.
Those planning to drive to campus the night of Oct. 29 to hear the Bay Area-based Lutsinga Ensemble sing South African melodies should contact the MultiCultural Center for parking arrangements.
Any vehicles found without valid permits during the above dates will be ticketed and towed, campus officials warned. Direct any questions to T&PS at x2346 during office hours.
