Effective January 1 through March 15 special guidelines are in effect for parking in any faculty/staff lot.

Student parking lots will be plowed when passage becomes difficult or hazardous and the faculty/staff lots are cleared. Normally this would occur 36 to 48 hours after a significant snowfall. Major snowstorms will delay this process.

Once Resident Assistants receive notice to move student vehicles so a specific lot 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, whichever comes first.

In lot D2 north and south, spaces at the east end of the lot are closed to parking for snow removal. Vehicles parked in these spaces may be towed at the owner's expense. Shovels will be available at Landscape Services and Security for those who can not wait for lots to be cleared. Owners of vehicles that are plowed in should contact Landscape Services for assistance.
