Parking

You are welcome to park in our lot while you are at Newman; however, parking is limited. There are few spots.  And on a campus where parking is at a premium during the school day, we jealously guard ours. So, feel free to use our slots while your visiting Newman, but, be warned, we tow folks who sneak into our lot and then traipse off to somewhere else.

Please do not double park (and that means during Sunday Mass too). We have had several unfortunate experiences when ambulances could not get in or out of the lot because of illegally parked cars. As a result, the Amherst Fire department checks on us regularly and they (rightfully) get very upset when they find double parked cars and let us know how very upset they are.
