Fort Wayne, Ind.—To accommodate continuing enrollment growth in its traditional program, Indiana Tech has established a new parking policy. The Fort Wayne campus will now have designated areas for residential students, commuter students, and visitors.
“We’ve experienced wonderful growth in the past few years, and we’ve made some extensive improvements to our campus,” President Arthur E. Snyder explained. “While there are a lot of benefits to growth, it also brings some challenges. Parking is one of those challenges.”
Enrollment in the traditional program for this fall is expected to surpass 1,000 students, an increase of more than 60% over the past five years. Visitor traffic also has increased as more organizations take advantage of conference facilities in Andorfer Commons.
Under the new policy, all students, staff and faculty are required to have a parking permit issued by the university. Student permits will be designated as either residential for those living in campus housing or commuter for those living off campus.
Each parking lot on campus will be clearly designated as residential, commuter, or visitor. Parking regulations will be in effect from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays beginning August 25, the first day of fall semester classes.
