Parking restrictions begin tonight

Posted on February 7, 2016

The New England area forecast is in flux but predictions currently indicate that snow will begin after midnight tonight and continue through Monday morning into the evening. So parking restrictions will begin tonight, Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016, at 6 p.m., and continue until further notice to facilitate the clearing of snow from paths, roads and parking lots.

14-Campus-Snow-Parking-800For your safety, please be aware of the potential of falling objects, such as tree limbs and snow and ice from roofs, and take care as you move about the campus as paths may be slippery. Continue to monitor email and the website for any updates.

The parking restrictions that will begin at 6 p.m. this evening apply to students. Staff and faculty reporting for work should park in their regular locations (lots 1, 2, 4, 7, 8 or 9).

Please note: Any vehicle parked in closed lots, and that hampers snow removal, may be towed to an off-campus location, at the owner’s expense.

Your cooperation is much appreciated.
