The College’s new parking structure will begin construction in summer 2023
North Central College plans to construct a new parking pavilion on the south end of campus, on the site of the existing Merner surface lot also referred to as “the bowl” that sits directly across from the Merner Field House. The four-level parking pavilion will contain 530 spaces. Level 1 (116 spaces) will be designated as commuter/faculty/staff/visitor parking. And levels 2-4 (414 spaces) will be used for resident student parking.
Plans for the new parking center were created after analysis by the traffic and transportation planning and engineering firm Kenig, Lindgren, O’Hara, Abonna, Inc. (KLOA). The firm found that off-street parking locations are 90% occupied at peak, which warrants additional campus parking capacity.
