Dog Days

Directions and Parking

Dog Days for incoming Spring 2023 transfer students will take place in the Satellite Student Union in the winter.

Dog Days for the Fall 2024 semester will be held in the Resnick Student Union in June and July.

Parking permit codes will be emailed to students prior to their in-person Dog Days Orientation. Students can also download the PayByPhone app for a faster parking experience. The PayByPhone app is used by the campus during the school year.


Parking is strictly enforced on-campus.  Dog Days provides its participants with a one-day parking pass as a part of their Dog Days registration. Dog Days will have limited staff in the parking lots during Dog Days to assist with parking. Dog Days parking permits are only valid on orientation dates. 

Directions from your residence to the school can be computed by clicking here.

Campus improvement projects typically take place during the summer so please arrive early to avoid potential road and parking lot closures on campus.


During Dog Days we recommend that you park in Lot P1 near the intersection of Shaw and Maple Ave. Although the Dog Days parking permit is valid in any GREEN student lot, Lot P1 is the most accessible to the Resnick Student Union where you check-in for Dog Days in the morning.


Finding your way around the campus can be a challenge.  You can print a campus map below that will help you find your way to DOG DAYS.
