Parking & Transportation Services at the University at
Buffalo has instituted some changes in parking and transportation
services on Monday, April 11, to accommodate a rally by Bernie
Sanders at the invitation of the undergraduate Students Association
at 7 p.m. in Alumni Arena and a visit by journalist Sarah Koenig at
7:30 p.m. in the Center for the Arts.
UB is not cancelling classes on April 11 and does not expect a
major disruption to normal operations.
Tickets are not required for the Sanders rally, but RSVPs
via the Sanders campaign are strongly encouraged. Please do not
call the university about tickets or RSVPs.
The parking/transportation changes:
- The UB Stampede will suspend its “ID Required to
Ride” policy in support of these events. We encourage
everyone to use the NFTA Bus & Rail, and hop on board the UB
Stampede at Main Circle for transportation to the North Campus.
This will greatly help us minimize traffic and parking impact for
- Beginning at 7 a.m., Slee B lot (or portion thereof) will be
reserved to supply sufficient event ADA/handicap parking.
- At 7 a.m., the Stadium lot will be reserved for media, and
Sanders event parking.
- Beginning at 1 p.m., the Special Event lot will be closed and
reserved for patrons of the Sarah Koenig presentation/event at the
Center for the Arts.
- Parking & Transportation Services staff will be on hand
beginning at 1 p.m. to assist with guiding and directing students,
faculty, staff and campus event guests to open parking. We strongly
encourage use of the Center for Tomorrow lot (off of Flint Road),
where the Green Line shuttle connects to Flint Loop. Green Line
service will be extended through 10:30 p.m. on Monday.
- If you are not attending these events but are attending evening
classes or otherwise visiting the North Campus, please consider
parking on the north side of the North Campus, including of the
Jarvis, Furnas, Ketter and Governors lots. The north-side lots are
easily accessible if you enter campus via the Rensch or Hamilton
- At 8 p.m. all reserved parking lots will reopen for use by the
entire university community.
Tune into 1620 AM on your radio for up to date parking and
transportation information within a 4-mile radius of the North
Campus. Questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or
