Snow Removal Guidelines

Between December 15 and March 15, special guidelines are in effect to assist snow removal crews with plowing the parking lots on our campus. Vehicles left in the faculty/staff lots after midnight may be towed at the owner's expense. We ask that individuals working late-evening shifts park in the middle of the lot so curb lines can be properly cleared. All vehicles must display a valid parking permit.

Resident Assistants may receive notice to move student vehicles to a specific lot so other lots may be plowed; students will have until the designated time given in the notice to move their vehicle to a specified area. All vehicles must be removed from the designated temporary lot within 24 hours or whenever normal assigned lots are clear.

In some lots, spaces along curb-lines may be restricted to assist the snow removal process. Signs will be posted and vehicles parked in these spaces may be towed at the owner’s expense. 

We ask that you do not park on end caps (end of rows), or in the driving lanes of any lot. As this will impede snow removal.
