Issued by: Robert J. Parrish, V.P. for Administration

Effective Date: December 11, 1987

NOTES: Concurred upon by President's Cabinet December 11, 1987, Updated by GAC Spring 1999, Approved by Forum March 2000

1. Restricted Parking During Winter Months

a. From November 15 to April 15, parking is prohibited on the main campus from 5 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday morning, when a snow emergency has been declared by the Administration. The ONLY exception is for faculty and staff who must work.

2. Emergency Snow Parking Areas

a. Emergency Snow Parking Areas will be designated as the Waller-Andruss Library and Haas lots.
b. This area will be from south of Waller (excluding East Centennial Lot), to the east side of Haas Center. These areas will be plowed first, so they must be vacated as soon as a snow emergency has been announced by the Administration.

These lots will then become temporary parking areas for all vehicles. The two lower levels of the tri-level can be used for temporary parking for all vehicles until the designated parking areas are cleaned.

The No Parking rule from 2:00 a.m. until 6:00 a.m. weekdays, Monday through Friday, (Article IV of the Parking Regulations) will be in effect as always. The purpose of this is to facilitate early snow plowing and clean-up.

3. Official School Closing

a. If classes are cancelled and/or the University is officially closed, then Sections 2a through 2b of Emergency Snow Regulations will be enforced.
