MAGIC Spell Studios Construction

In November, RIT announced exciting plans to build a new home for MAGIC Spell Studios adjacent to Gannett Hall. This project will break ground soon and is expected to be completed by fall 2018.

The fenced in portion will take up all of the current handicapped spaces in E-Lot. Therefore, we will be converting reserved and visitor spaces into handicapped in order to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  The project manager will inform our office when the reserve spots can be released.  Please pay close attention to all signage when parking, as the existing signage may be repositioned.  

We are allowing E-lot reserve holders to park in F or D lot reserve for the rest of this semester. 

Please direct any questions to our parking email at

We thank you for your patience and cooperation.
