Snow Emergency Parking Plan

Download the Flier

During a snow emergency, vehicles must be moved from parking spaces marked "Snow Emergency, No Parking" during the hours of 12 a.m. through 6 a.m.

The primary overnight parking locations for temporarily displaced vehicles are the Field House lot for students, and the Main Library (Mudd Center) lot for faculty and staff.

If you have plans to leave campus overnight and your vehicle is parked in a "Snow Emergency, No Parking" lot, it is your responsibility to move it to the Union Street lot.

Students who use The Main Library lot must remove their vehicles before 7 a.m.

The Office of Safety and Security will ticket vehicles in violation of this practice and will tow the vehicle at the owner's expense. A $65 fine to cover towing fees must be paid at the Office of Safety and Security prior to release of the vehicle.
