SUBJECT: Campus preparations for the visit from President Obama
On Tuesday, April 24, 2012 the University of Colorado Boulder is honored to
host the President of the United States at the Coors Events Center
(CEC). In preparation for the event, there will be several closures and
detours on our campus. The White House has partnered with CU-Boulder to reduce
campus disruptions as much as possible.
-- The University is committed to maintaining an environment where academic
pursuits and campus activities can proceed as scheduled. Campus personnel who
are attending or volunteering for the event during regularly scheduled work
hours need to obtain supervisor approval and may take annual or administrative
leave as appropriate. For further clarification, supervisors can contact the
Office of Labor Relations.
-- Several parking lots in and around the CEC must be vacated by 7:00 p.m. on
Monday, April 23 as follows:
--- Lots 412, 416, 418, 419, 420, 421, 434, 440, 448
--- and sections of Lots 436 and 494
All vehicles left in these lots after this time will be relocated.
-- Some on-campus parking will be available for displaced permit holders. For
those permit holders who are relocated at the CU Research Park, a Buff Bus
shuttle to and from Main Campus will be provided approximately every seven
minutes between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Tuesday. For specific
information about your regular parking lot, please read designated emails from
Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) or visit the PTS website:
