This includes any UMW assigned Service/Pool Vehicles for all departments and contractor vehicles that are not parked in approved locations on campus during the declaration. Please move these vehicles to one of the following lots: Sunken Road lot #13 located outside the Alvey Drive Parking Deck, the Battleground #33 lot located on Hanover Street, or Alvey Drive Parking Deck levels 1-3.

All designated handicapped parking spaces, except those at Woodard Campus Center, and the University Center are exempt from Snow Emergency regulations. Facilities Services will ensure handicapped spaces remain accessible.
Lots will reopen at 7 a.m., January 25 unless the University is declared closed or moves to a delayed opening. Under either of these conditions, all Snow Emergency areas will remain closed to parking until the University officially reopens.
