About Gates & Bollards

Transportation and Parking Services operates several secured access gates around the campus. The intent of these gates is to restrict private vehicle access to the service areas of the campus and to ensure emergency vehicles are able to respond to these areas promptly without obstacles or delay.  Bollards have been placed in and around the Inner Campus, limiting vehicle access on pedestrian paths and walkways.
