Bus Parking Information

After students are dropped off at the circle in front of the Project Oceanology building, bus drivers should exit the campus, turn left on Shennecossett Road, and then turn left again at the main entrance to the campus. The designated bus parking is in the student lot, near the end of the lot and against the seawall as indicated on the map found here. Please do not park within the Waterfront Program space as it will interfere with their operations.
