Night and Weekend Parking for Students

There are some nights and weekend parking options available to students at little or no cost.

  • Students can purchase a Student Evening Decal for $21 per year. This decal permits access to Parking 2, Level A after 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday, and 24 hours-a-day on weekends and UAMS-observed holidays. Students must exit the lot by 7 a.m. during the week.
  • There are five campus lots available for free parking by students after 4:30 p.m. on weekdays and 24 hours-a-day on weekends and UAMS-observed holidays. No decal is required, though vehicles without a permit should exit the lot prior to 7:15 a.m. on weekdays.

Those lots are:

  • Lot 1
  • Lot 6
  • Lot 7E
  • Lot 10
  • Lot 18

UAMS Adds New Shuttle, Changes Routes

UAMS is adding a new shuttle bus and revising routes, beginning Monday, Feb. 6, in an effort to improve shuttle service to and from campus.

Shuttle service will be dedicated to each of the three FREE lots — Ray Winder, War Memorial and Rick’s Armory — during peak times.

Please select the route that works best for you and park in the appropriate lot. It will be important that you take the correct shuttle when returning to your parked car.

 

Additional information is available on the Parking Operations website.


Student Research Day

Hello Everyone,

Below is the link for Student Research Day (SRD) and the abstract submission is on the left menu once you reach that page.  Deadline for the poster Abstract submission is March 22.  Student Research Day is April 12.  We have a class blackout day for whole campus, so there should be no conflicts (excluding clinical clerkships).  There will be multiple prizes by student category.  If you have questions, please let me know.

LINK:  http://research.uams.edu/students/research-day/

This is open to any UAMS Student who is doing research with a UAMS faculty mentor.

Also for the M2 and M3’s doing the Honors in  Research Program…. Remember you are required to participate in SRD in either your M2 or M3 years and there are no exceptions, so if you are an M3, you have to present here.  Also remember that I sent an email recently that you can do the 3 MT instead of a poster, your choice.

All students……. In the next few days I will be sending out the details to sign up for the 3 MT.  We will be having semifinals the last week of March with finals to be held on SRD.  It is totally fine if you want to register for both, and they can be on the same project.

MD/PhD Students……… if you participate, sign up as PhD.

Let the games begin and many thx.

-Dr. McGehee
