GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The O’Connell Center west parking lot, which is the small lot next to McKethan Stadium, will be reserved for fall commencement ceremony use all day on Friday.

Drivers who normally park there should seek alternate parking Friday. In addition, drivers who normally park in the O’Connell Center main parking lot and Garage 7 may also need to seek alternate parking on Friday due to the anticipated impact from commencement.

Additional shared red/green decal parking — also available to orange decal holders – has been created on the rooftop level of Garage 5 to alleviate parking issues at the O’Connell Center. Garage 5 is located just south of the intersection of Museum Road and Gale Lemerand Drive.
