    the following comment is meaningless for new staff
    Road closures along Chancellor Matheson and University Crescent (the same as a Blue Bomber game day) will go in to effect 90 minutes prior to every FIFA game

    Can you please detail what the entry and exit route is from ALL staff parking lots.
    Monday was pure chaos.
    Why block Chancellor North when NO ONE was using it????

    First, I would like to confirm that parking in B lot is not affected by the event parking restrictions.

    And second, could you be more specific about what part of University Cres will be blocked – how do we get out??
