Dedman Center parking lot closes permanently Jan. 9, 2012

To prepare for construction of SMU’s new student housing, the parking lot at the University’s Dedman Center for Lifetime Sports has closed permanently as of Monday, Jan. 9, 2012. Dedman Center patrons have been requested to park in the Moody, Meadows or Binkley garages.

The Department of Recreational Sports has responded to the parking changes with a new Giddy Up golf cart service program to begin the first day of Spring 2012 classes, Tuesday, Jan. 17. The planned route will run Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. to and from Dedman Center to Mustang Plaza, and from Binkley Avenue to Dedman Center and Loyd All-Sports Center, returning to Dedman Center. The 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Giddy Up route will make the same stops as the morning route and will also include Bishop Boulevard.
