Faculty, staff, student parking recommendations during fall 2019 Career Conference

The 2019 Fall Career Conference is Thursday, Sept. 26, bringing a record number of employers to campus to recruit talented Blugold students for internships and professional jobs. 

Our guests, who will arrive on campus between 7-9:30 a.m., have been invited to park in the HSS and Haas lots. This will impact the availability of parking spots on this day.

By leaving parking spots open for our employer-partners in these two lots, UW-Eau Claire employees and students who are parking permit holders can contribute to students’ success. Happy employers who have an easy time parking and getting onto campus will be that much more prepared to interact with Blugold job candidates.

Here are ways employee and student parking permit holders can help alleviate parking challenges for our employer-partners on Sept. 26:

  • Use the Phillips, Hibbard and Water Street parking lots, creating space in the the HSS and Haas parking lots for visiting employers.
  • Use the free shuttle service from alternative parking in the Carson Park parking lot. This is a new service to help campus deal with this one-day increased parking demand. The shuttle will run continuously between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Campus drop-off will be in the Haas parking lot. 
  • Walk or bike to/from campus if possible.
  • Carpool to/from campus if possible.

Thank you in advance for making it easier for employers to visit us expressly to hire our talented Blugolds!
