Special Parking Instructions for Exams on 12/8/2012

On Dec. 8, 2012, the law school will hold exams at 9 a.m. for Federal Income Tax (Professor Dickinson) and Juvenile Law (Professor Sheldon). At 2 p.m. the law school will hold exams for Elections and Campaign Finance (Professor Johnson) and Contracts (Professors Drahozal, Lucas, Peck and Ware). On that same day, at 1 p.m., men’s basketball will play Colorado in Allen Fieldhouse. (The game was scheduled after our exam schedule was established). The athletic event will create a parking conflict for all law school exams administered on December 8.

Please plan ahead for parking on this date. You should arrive much earlier than normal to allow plenty of time to find parking. And, carpooling is encouraged. Parking is available (as detailed below), but will be limited (if available at all) in the lots closest to the law school. For purposes of finding the nearest parking, please refer to the KU Parking Map.

Where to park

The 9 a.m. exams

You may park in Lots 61 and 62 (colloquially referred to as the Computer Center lots, near the guard gate at Sunnyside Ave. and Sunflower Road). KU Parking will post signs outside of Lots 61 and 62 that inform the public that these lots are reserved for law school finals. These lots are not ticketed, so any law student will be able to park there. 

You may also park in the parking lots near the residence halls west of the law school. These parking lots are attached to Templin Hall, Daisy Hill and the Lied Center. These lots are open to anyone on Saturday, Dec. 8. If you are unable to find parking in Lots 61 and 62, use these lots.

The 2 p.m. exams:

You may park in the lots near the residence halls west of the law school. These parking lots are attached to Templin Hall, Daisy Hill and the Lied Center. 

In addition, there may be a limited number of parking spaces in Lots 72 and 54, closest to the law school.  Shortly after the basketball game tipoff (1 p.m.), KU Parking will stop restricting entry into the Williams Fund reserved lots, including Lots 72 (colloquially the Burge Union Parking lot) and 54 (colloquially the law school parking lot).  Law students arriving for the 2 p.m. final will be able to use any open spots in Lots 72 and 54, so long as the Parking Department has unmanned their stations in those lots. There may also be open spaces in Lots 61 and 62 (see parking for 9 a.m. exams, above), if basketball fans abide by the posted signs and refrain from parking in those lots.

Parking for Students with Disabilities

If you have a physical disability that prevents you from walking from the lots designated for parking on Dec. 8, please contact Associate Dean Melanie Wilson, mdwilson@ku.edu, or Associate Dean Crystal Mai, cmai@ku.edu, to make arrangements for transportation to the law school on Dec. 8.
