Mount Ida College Introduces New Policies and Plan for Campus Parking

Mount Ida College is introducing a new campus-wide parking plan for fall 2014, with the goal of providing safe, orderly, and convenient parking for students, employees, and visitors to our campus. We strive to make parking on campus as convenient as possible, while promoting safe movement of vehicles, providing for pedestrian safety, and assuring free and continuous access to buildings and walkways for pedestrians and emergency vehicles. New, color-coded parking signage will identify the updated parking area designations.
