Updated August 19, 2022:

Deck 1 structural renovations are near completion. Deck 1 is scheduled to reopen on or before Tuesday, September 6, 2022. All structural repairs will be complete except for the Warren Place pedestrian access, located at the Southeast corridor of the garage (across from the Golden Dome).

The work on the Southeast corridor of the garage (across from the Golden Dome) will continue through fall 2022 semester. The stairwell adjacent to Warren Place pedestrian access will be accessible to foot traffic. Students using this stairwell must follow the safe walking path to exit and enter the University Avenue side of Deck 1. The above image provides a rendering that shows how the Southeast corridor of Deck 1 will appear upon completion. Major aesthetic improvements will be ongoing in Deck 1 through the fall semester.

Deck 1, when open, will be accessible to Newark Premium Commuter, Campus Resident and Off-Campus Living permit holders during aesthetic improvements. Students with Premium Commuter, Resident, and Off-Campus Living permits will be able to park in Deck 2 and Deck 3 both are located on Washington Street between Raymond Blvd and Warren St.
