Tips for Parking at CPCC’s Campuses

Please consider carpooling or using public transportation, and plan to arrive early to campus to allow enough time to park and find your class. Traffic is heavy during this time of the year, and there are construction and maintenance projects on most CPCC campuses – particularly Central Campus – that could cause issues. We strongly encourage you to carpool or use public transportation as Central Campus traffic volumes adjust during the first two weeks of class. Also, consider visiting your campus ahead of time to get comfortable with your parking and classroom locations before classes start if this will be your first semester with the college.

Download the CPCC app to see all CPCC campus maps – or go directly to the Central Campus map for more specific information – and follow #cpccparking on Twitter.

Here are the latest updates:

  • NEW PARKING DECK/LOT NUMBERS: The parking decks and lots on Central Campus have been re-numbered as follows (please see the Central Campus map for details):

o   Closed until 2019: Central Campus parking deck #1 – 1321 Charlottetowne Ave.

o   Central Campus parking deck #2 – 1108 Charlottetowne Ave.

o   Central Campus parking deck #3 – 1345 E. 4th St.

o   Central Campus parking deck #4 – 1225 E. 4th St.

  • PARKING DECK CLOSURE: As a reminder, the parking deck located at the corner of 7th Street and Charlottetowne Ave. (now called parking deck #1), will remain closed until further notice while maintenance work continues.
  • PARKING DECK / LOT AVAILABILITY: To help with the need for parking spaces on Central Campus, students can park in any of the other decks and in all surface lots. The only exceptions are spaces that require a handicap permit,  visitor spaces, and designated maintenance vehicle or administration spaces.

Get your parking decal. Local businesses strictly enforce towing. Student parking decals are available at any campus Cashiering office during regular operating hours. All Cashiering offices will have extended hours the first two weeks of the term (Aug. 13-24). During that time, the hours of operation are 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Friday. Parking decals must be displayed by Friday, Aug. 31.

For the sixth-consecutive year, CPCC is partnering with the Project Life Movement, a campus-based national marrow donor organization, to solicit new donors to the National Bone Marrow Registry List in

Project Life

Project Life

honor of Dr. Deitemeyer’s inauguration on Nov. 3.

CPCC and Project Life invite students to attend its upcoming Drive Thru Swabbing event, being held on CPCC’s Central Campus from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., on Nov. 1, in the Overcash Driveway.

CPCC-based student organizations, including Rotaract Club, Cytotechnology Student Association and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, are all partnering with CPCC Service-Learning/Student Life to play a key leadership role in this initiative which seeks to add 700 new donors to the National Bone Marrow Registry List.

During the event, participants will have the inside of their cheeks swabbed for a tissue sample and complete paperwork. The process will take no longer than 10 minutes. After completing the registration process, participants will not only be added to the National Bone Marrow Registry List, but also have the opportunity to enjoy a free lunch – provided by CPCC’s Baking & Pastry Arts students – sign a well wish card for Dr. Deitemeyer and win a variety of prizes.

Come out and be a part of the movement and help save a life!

Donate to a Loaves and Fishes Food Barrel

CPCC’s partnership with Loaves & Fishes continues during Dr. Deitemeyer’s inauguration week when Loaves & Fishes sets up food barrels at each CPCC campus between Oct. 19 and Nov. 30. The CPCC community is invited to donate non-perishable items during this time.

If you’re not sure what to donate, visit the Loaves & Fishes Priority Needs List. All donated items will help feed individuals and families in need who are experiencing a short-term crisis by providing them with a week’s worth of nutritionally balanced groceries.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and helping a neighbor in need!
