About 384 student parking spots will be eliminated in Lot 44 and relocated to new lots on Razorback Road.

Faculty, staff and reserved parking will remain in place.

Lot 44 is a student and faculty/staff parking lot located at the north side of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

Vehicles should be moved by 7 a.m. Saturday.

All vehicles left in the south portion of Lot 44 and all student vehicles remaining in the lot after 7 a.m. Monday morning will be cited and relocated at the owner’s expense.

However, after Monday, students may park in the unclosed portions of the Lot 44 after 5 p.m. weekdays and anytime Saturday or Sunday.

Stadium Expansion

The lot will be closed to allow the contractor to move-in and set-up fences and equipment for the Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium expansion project.

Department of Intercollegiate Athletics worked with Transit and Parking for more than two years to minimize the parking impact of the project.

Razorback Athletics invested more than $4.2 million in the past three years to develop additional parking for students along Razorback Road.

The project included demolition of existing houses on the land, site preparation and paving of student parking lots.

Approximately 835 newly surfaced parking spots were created as part of these parking enhancement projects.

Even with the temporary loss of some parking spaces in Lot 44, more than 500 additional parking spots are still available for students, faculty and staff.

The stadium expansion project is expected to be completed by Aug. 1, 2018.

Suggested Adjustments

Students who parked in Lot 44 are encouraged to park in the student parking lots 74, 74A, 74B, 74C and 74D, on the west side of Razorback Rd, west of the outdoor track.

These lots are located near transit bus stops for students? convenience.
