Parking lot 5 changed to pay station

Visitors to the university will have access to more parking on campus starting at the end of the month. 

Lot 5 will become a pay station lot beginning Jan. 31, according to SIU’s Parking Division. However, those with red or blue decals are still permitted to park at the lot, which is north of Woody Hall.

Eli Epplin, assistant coordinator of the parking division, said the change will be made to increase visitor parking. People parking in that lot will now pay at the pay station, which requires a two-hour minimum payment of $1.


Faculty and staff with blue or gold decals can park in Lot 7, which is north of Pulliam, according to the parking division’s website.
