Residence move-in traffic and parking

This year, residence move-in will be spread out across five days, from Sept. 1 to Sept. 5. Students will be arriving at staggered times throughout the day, and a number of other measures will be taken to promote physical distancing. 

As residences will be operating at only half capacity in the fall, there will be fewer students moving in than usual.

Compared to previous years, move-in days will have limited impact on traffic and parking in the campus area. There will be no closures of public streets around residence buildings.

Bader Lane will be restricted to one-way traffic, west-bound only, and no parking will be permitted on the street. These changes will be in effect from Tuesday Sept. 1 at 8 am through Saturday Sept. 5 at 9 pm. In addition, parking restrictions will be in place for the five-day period, on the following streets:

  • Lower Albert, from Queen’s Crescent to King St.
  • Queen’s Crescent
  • Collingwood St., from King to Queen’s Crescent
  • Stuart St., from University to Albert

Representatives from the City of Kingston have approved the university’s traffic management plan.
