RESIDENT MOVE OUT TRAFFIC PLAN
To assist students and their families to move personal belongings out of
the residence halls, Public Safety has developed a traffic flow plan.
Along with the traffic plan, some street areas will be designated as NO
PARKING. Depending on where a student resides, they may choose to use
the area most convenient from the choices listed below.

Royal Way- (GLM Residents) - The Royal Way will be open for entrance
from Mulberry Street, one way towards the Commons from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm,
on dates set by University Police during Finals Week. Vehicles should stay to the left after entering
and move closest to the student’s residence hall. Students may load the
vehicle, proceed to the Commons, and turn left heading up the Commons
and exiting to Linden Street.

The Commons- (Upper Quad, Lower Quad, Driscoll and Nevils Residents) -
Students whose most convenient loading area would be the Commons should enter
in the same manner as described for Royal Way. Students may load the
vehicle while on the Commons and exit to Linden Street.

Quincy or Monroe Ave.  traveling one way toward Hitchcock Court. 
Vehicles may also enter the service road through Hitchcock Court off of Mulberry St.
