Ralston Parking Lot to Close Starting at 4 p.m. on Oct. 3

The University reserves the right to temporarily close all or part of any campus parking areas for special events and/or maintenance to facilitate efficient parking and traffic flow in our parking lots

For the homecoming football game this Saturday, Oct. 5, the University Police Department requests that all students parking at the Ralston Field Lot relocate their cars to main campus parking lots starting at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3. 

We will not ticket any student with a Ralston permit legally parked on campus on Friday, Oct. 4.

The Ralston Parking Lot will be closed and secured at 10 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3. Vehicles left in the lot may be subject to towing/relocation fees. The parking lot will reopen for gameday operations on Saturday, Oct. 5. 

Saturday will be a busy day at the Ralston Sports Complex. Our Wilkes Colonels football team takes on Alvernia University at noon. Our soccer teams both battle FDU-Florham, with the men's match starting at noon, followed by the women's match at 3 p.m. 

We strongly encourage the use of shuttle services to and from Ralston to allow for visitor parking. 

All vehicles must be moved back to the Ralston parking lot before 7:30 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 7, when classes resume.  We hope you have a safe and enjoyable weekend!
