Campus Snow Action Day Rules and Safe Practices

  • Snow Action Days will be called by the university in the event of major winter weather.
  • Review and adhere to all winter parking rules listed above. Help keep the roads and parking lots clear.
  • No parking is allowed on the top level of university ramps. Vehicles must be moved prior to 7 a.m. to avoid citation and relocation.
  • Leave your cars, mopeds, and bicycles at home. Fewer vehicles on the roads mean less congested, safer travel for all.
  • Dress for the weather. Wear warm clothes and shoes with excellent traction.
