Aug. 17, 2012 — It is the one day of the year, that if you don’t like traffic, you better not come to the Morehead State University campus.
New Student Move-In Day will be held on Friday, Aug. 17, from 8 a.m. to approximately 5 p.m. Battson-Oates Drive, which runs from University Boulevard up the hill toward the Mignon Complex, will temporarily be one-way west to Henry Ward Place behind the library.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to access employee parking off Henry Ward Place from Fifth Street on the west end of campus. Those with reserved spaces on University Boulevard will be allowed to enter campus as long as their reserved tag is properly displayed. Be prepared, if asked, to show your University EagleCard.
This traffic pattern was designed to accommodate new students moving into their residence halls. Comply with posted and verbal directions of police and volunteers during this time.
“New Student Move-In Day is the busiest traffic day on campus. Be patient and allow extra time to reach your destination,” said Matt Sparks, MSU police chief.
Faculty and staff members are encouraged to limit their travel on campus during move-in hours.
Parents and students are asked to report to the parking (overflow) lot across from campus to begin the residence hall check-in process.
