Enrollment Growth Spurs New Parking Policy

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. 

  • Residential permits will allow students to park in lots on the east side of the campus and near residence halls on the north side of Washington Boulevard.
  • Commuter permits will allow students to park in lots on the west side of campus, closest to classroom buildings, as well as lots on the north side of campus near Andorfer Commons and Abbott Center.
  • Faculty and staff permits will allow parking in lots designated for commuters. However, faculty and staff are encouraged to park in the lots furthest from classroom buildings when possible.
  • Visitor parking will be allowed in the lots near Andorfer Commons and Abbott Center as well as a small portion of the lot near the Wilfred Uytengsu Sr. Center.

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.
