Bamboozle Left & Matt?s Run to Affect Campus Roadways & Parking
Parking & Transportation Services and University Police personnel will be on hand Oct. 14 and 15 to help manage traffic.

The university has a full slate of events planned for Oct. 14 and 15, which will affect campus roadways and parking. Parking & Transportation Services and University Police personnel will be on campus each day to assist guests with directions to their respective event.

The two main events that will require road and parking lot closures are the Matthew Myers 5K Memorial Run/Walk and Bamboozle Left.

The Matthew Myers Memorial 5K is an inaugural event to honor a student whose life was cut short by a traffic accident. The run/walk takes place Oct. 14, and will require the closure of Ag Valley Road, Citrus Lane, Eucalyptus Drive, Oak Lane, Red Gum Lane and portions of University Drive from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Those participating in the event will be directed to park in Lot F10.

Bamboozle Left, a two-day music festival on the university's athletic field, will require the closure of Lot Q from Oct. 11 through Oct. 16.  An audience of 10,000 people is expected each day of the festival.

The north section of Lot Q will be available for Residential Suite occupants only.  

On Oct. 14 and 15, lots G, N and P will be open only to Bamboozle staff and crew with special permits. That weekend lots A, B, D, E, F, G, K and M will be primarily for Bamboozle Left guests. Overflow Lot 1 will also be available near the American Red Cross. Parking is $10 for vehicles not displaying a valid CPP parking permit.

Faculty and staff visiting the campus those days will be directed to Lot J.

As a courtesy to the campus community, any vehicles remaining in the southern portion of Lot Q on Oct. 11 will be moved to the north side of the lot.
