Parking is the first and last experience people have on a campus, serving as an introductory point for a user to become a pedestrian on a campus to get to their final destination. Many campuses have seized the opportunity to design parking that makes a statement: be it a gateway to the campus, an expression of identity or a platform to enhance connectivity.
Just this past fall, the University of San Diego opened the Osler parking structure, which was designed to enrich the campus experience. See how this campus utilized architecture, technology and a re-imagined Visitor's Center to create a new front door to campus.
We hope that we will see you at the SCUP Pacific Regional Conference March 27-29 in Boulder, Colorado to discuss this and other parking topics!
