Plan for plowing residence hall parking lots to be implemented

A residence hall snow-plowing plan has been created to ensure campus safety, increase
thoroughness and reduce the time it takes to plow the parking lots usually utilized by students living in residence halls.

When snow accumulates to the height necessary to start the plan, residential students will be notified and instructed to move their vehicles to designated alternative parking lots between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Unless there is a declared snow emergency, students will be given a notice at least 48 hours in advance through a message on Intercom and an email from the Office of Residential Life. When the plan is initiated, students will be instructed to move their vehicles from residence hall lots no later than 6 p.m. according to an online schedule from parking services at the college. Vehicles can be parked in their original parking lots at 9 p.m.
