Winter Weather Emergency Parking Procedures

Resident students

By midnight on the day the snow and ice traffic emergency is declared or at the time designated by appropriate university officials, all resident students must have their vehicles parked in the three resident lots (Duck Pond Road Resident Lot (the Cage), Chicken Hill lot, and the Stadium Lot).

Resident student vehicles that are parked outside of these areas are subject to ticketing and towing. Resident student vehicles must remain parked in the resident lots until the snow emergency has been lifted.

Employees and students

As many vehicles as possible must be out of the lots to allow for plowing snow. This allows the lots to be made as safe and convenient as possible during snow and ice conditions. Vehicles should not be abandoned in a normal lane of traffic when road conditions become difficult. Vehicles abandoned in roadways or in hazardous locations in parking lots will be towed at the owner's expense.
