More snow: Parking ban begins tonight

Posted on March 25, 2014

This had better be the last time we have to say this, considering that we are now officially into spring: Snow is on the way. Time to move your car—again.

The forecasts for late tonight into Wednesday vary from one meteorologist to the next, with snow predictions in our area ranging from a coating to up to six inches. Wheaton’s amazing buildings and grounds crew is planning for plowable snow, just to be on the safe side.

So, you know the drill.

To enable clearing campus roads, paths and parking lots as quickly as possible, the college will institute its snow removal plan effective at 10 p.m. tonight, Tues., March 25, 2014, until 10 p.m. on Weds., March 26, 2014. The ban does not apply to faculty or staff.

Any vehicle parked in closed lots, and that hampers emergency snow removal efforts, may be towed to an off-campus location, at the owners expense.

Please note that when the college is open, faculty and staff are allowed to park in faculty and staff lots. If the college is closed due to weather, the parking ban applies to everyone.

Students should make sure that vehicles are parked in one of the following lots:

  • Lot 1A, which is adjacent to the baseball stadium only
  • Lot 3, which is accessed from Pine Street
  • Lot 4, located off Fillmore Drive at the Meadows complex
  • Lot 10, behind the post office

The lots that are closed include:


  • Lot 1 (Faculty/Staff lot in front of and across from the Clark Recreation Center, Nursery School and 4 Clark Rec Drive / Guest House)
  • Lot 2 (Faculty/Staff/visitor section in lot along East Main Street, opposite YMCA)
  • Lot 7 (Faculty/Staff lot to left of Haas Athletic Center)
  • Lot 8 (Faculty/Staff lot to right of Haas Athletic Center)
  • Lot 9 (Faculty/Staff lot adjacent to Science Center loading dock)
  • Lyons Den lot and the Bookstore Lot
  • Parking areas located at Bittersweet, Lindens and Elms Dorms, 5/7 Pine Street, 46/48 East Main Street, 7&9 Howard Street, 42 Howard Street, 44 Howard Street, 20 Taunton Avenue, 26/28 Taunton Avenue, 34 Taunton Avenue and 9 Taunton Avenue
  • All vehicles parked along Howard Street should be moved to one of the open parking lots.

Any vehicle parked in closed lots, and that hampers emergency snow removal efforts, may be towed to an off-campus location, at the owners expense.
