SUGGESTIONS/IDEAS FOR PARKING "SMART" ON A SNOW DAY

  1. Park your vehicle next to other parked vehicles at the front of the lot.
  2. Use the UMass bus service.
  3. Carpool rides whenever possible.
  4. Walk if possible.
  5. Have someone drop you off.
  6. If space is not available in your assigned lot, go to either Lot 25 (north of roadway) or Yellow Lot 12 (both west of Physical Plant). During snow conditions, it is not possible to guarantee normal lot capacity will be available.
  7. If you receive a parking citation and believe it was improperly issued, you may appeal it at Parking Services within 14 days from the date issued. Appeals can be submitted in writing, appealed in person to the Hearings Clerk, or appealed online here.
