Move-in Day Saturday, Section of Gordon Street to Close

August 30, 2010 - Campus Bulletin

Gordon Street will be closed between Stone Road and College Avenue on Saturday, Sept. 4, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for residence student "move-in" day at the University of Guelph.

This closure is being done to reduce traffic congestion as more than 4,000 new students move into the University's residences. The road closure and detours will be clearly marked to assist people driving in the area.

In addition, access to South and East Ring roads will be limited to use by new students on this day, along with parking lots P31, P13, P17 and P19. Access to the section of South Ring Road that runs behind the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs building will also be restricted to move-in traffic.

To reduce congestion, people are encouraged to avoid coming to campus on this day. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Campus Community Police at 519-824-4120, Ext. 52245.

On Friday, students who live in the Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge and Guelph areas will be dropping their belongings off at their residence rooms between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.

To reduce traffic and to make it easier for the students to move in, Student Housing Services is asking that the parking spaces adjacent to the three south residences as well as Lennox Addington be left available.

Students and parents looking for more information on move-in day can visit the Student Housing Services website.
