Share | |

Posted on November 28, 2012

The Convocation Center will be closed and a portion of the Loop Road will be inaccessible to traffic Dec. 16-23 while scenes for a major motion picture are being filmed on campus.

This is a “closed set,” and no one will be admitted to the Convocation Center without the appropriate credentials.

The Loop Road will be closed from the Hamer Crossing to Lot 11, and the lower portion of Lot 4 will be closed to accommodate the film crew.

Access to portions of Gallagher Hall also will be restricted on Dec. 19-21, and movie extras will be parking in the River Lot on Dec. 20-21. Parking areas will be marked.

Visitor parking is available in the Vulcan Garage, off Third Street near the campus entrance.

We appreciate the patience of students, faculty and staff as our University takes advantage of this exceptional opportunity. Please follow all posted instructions and extend a warm and courteous welcome to visitors on campus.
