Texas A&M Transportation Services provides guidance before Howdy week, transfer

In support of Howdy Week and Move-In activities, Texas A&M University Transportation Services provides additional traffic management in heavily congested areas during rush hours August 21-25.

To allow for a more gradual approach to moving, billing this year will be by appointment only for most residents. As a result, drivers in the campus community will experience increased traffic throughout the week and will be asked to plan accordingly when traveling on and around campus.

“Our top priority during this time is safety,” said Peter Lange, associate vice president of transportation services. “We ask the community to be careful while driving around campus and we ask our cyclists to be very careful when cycling through the transfer areas.”

Short-term unloading areas are available at designated campus locations in order to alleviate congestion and facilitate transportation for arriving students. These areas will be managed by agents and signposted.

Visit the fall removal parking map for information on where to park and unload areas.

Cyclists are advised to be very careful, as certain bike lanes will be blocked during the week of the transfer.

Areas to follow with caution:

  • In the south areas of the campus, students and parents can access temporary unloading areas on Bizzell, Lewis and Coke streets. Transportation service agents will manage operations in these areas.
  • In the northern part of the campus, transportation service agents will manage operations on Hogg Street with the discharge allowed on the sidewalk. Parking or unloading is prohibited on Jones and Central Houston streets. Hart Hall residents will have limited access to four spaces in Lot 19 designated and marked as temporary unloading areas and Lot 22 on weekends.

Visit the transportation services transfer page for more information. Residence information is available at Residence Life.
