Kiewit Hall Construction

Abel Hall Move Out

Students living in Abel Hall will be moving out at the end of the semester. Construction and increased traffic can present some challenges. To help navigate through the area, follow these guidelines:

  • Enter the Abel/Sandoz parking area from Vine Street and exit to the north onto Antelope Valley Parkway.
  • The Abel parking garage arms will stay lifted from Monday, May 9 through hall closing. Vehicles can be parked in the garage while you’re moving out.
  • The flat surface lot between Abel and the parking garage should only be used for IMMEDIATE move out – i.e., loading up a car and heading out. Please limit parking in that area to 30 minutes to help with the flow of traffic.
  • All residents need to be checked out by a staff member by 10 a.m., Sunday, May 15. Staff will be in the Abel/Sandoz Welcome Center to assist you with checkout and answer questions.
