Wesleyan - Under Construction - Parking Options 

Due to several construction projects on campus, parking and access to University buildings is limited. We will do our best to accommodate the larger crowd on campus during the weekend through the use of golf carts and shuttle vans, but please expect delays and plan accordingly.
Additional parking may be available at the Middlesex Mutual Parking Garage (two blocks from campus at the junction of Court and Main streets), the Vine Street parking lot (adjacent to the tennis courts), and the Freeman Athletic Center parking lots (Cross Street and Pine Street). Shuttle vans will run regularly between these lots and all sites on campus.


The lot adjacent to the Stewart M. Reid House, Office of Admission, 70 Wyllys Avenue and the “C” lot on Church Street will be reserved for members of the Classes of ’56 and earlier, as well as for any individuals with disabilities. A parking/shuttle flyer will be included in your welcome packet. Please let us know by May 12 if you require special parking by contacting Laurie Zolty in the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations at 860/685-3527 or lzolty@wesleyan.edu.


Thank you for your understanding during this exciting time at Wesleyan.
