New Satellite Parking Lot – Effective Nov. 7, 2013
The Airport lot is no longer available.
The University has established a satellite parking lot at 140 Goddard Memorial Drive (less than a mile away from the previous satellite parking lot at Worcester Airport). Shuttle service will continue to be provided to and from this new location from:
Monday through Thursday
7am to 10pm
7am to 7pm
All students, staff, visitors and faculty are encouraged to use this remote parking facility. A one-way trip between the campus and the airport takes approximately 10 minutes, depending on traffic. Therefore, approximately 30 minutes should be allowed to park, ride back to campus, and get to your final destination.
