Student Parking Guidelines During Snow Emergencies


Parking guidelines for snow removal 
in RESIDENT STUDENT parking lots (see the O'Keefe Complex and parking garage below for commuter student parking information)

Peabody Lot

Approximately 20 parking spaces have been designated in the Peabody lot for PEABODY AND BOWDITCH RESIDENT STUDENTS ONLY. These spaces are clearly marked with signs. Only resident students with appropriate permits may park in these spaces, and only these spaces may be occupied overnight. All other spaces in the Peabody lot are reserved for commuter students and university staff. Cars parked in an incorrect location will be ticketed and towed. During a snowstorm, the majority of the lot will be plowed. After the initial plowing, resident students with appropriate permits will be asked to move their cars to a cleared area in order to allow for removal of snow from the “resident student only” spaces. 

South Campus Lot

During a snowstorm, a section of the South Campus lot will be plowed so that Bates residents can move their cars to a cleared area. The remaining area of the lot will then be plowed to accommodate the daily parking needs of South Campus. 

Central Campus Residence Hall Lot

Atlantic Hall resident students with permits to park in the residence hall lot will be notified when plowing will occur in the Central Campus residence hall lot. Upon notification, students will be notified to move their car by university police. Any car parked in an incorrect location will be ticketed and towed. When plowing is complete, resident students must move their cars back to the resident student spaces next to Atlantic Hall. 

Marsh Hall Residence, Satellite Parking 

Marsh Hall residents who have permits to park in satellite lots located at 11 Broadway and 142 Canal Street will not need to move their vehicles for snow plowing. Snow will be removed to the best of our ability in these lots.

It is crucial that resident students move their vehicles immediately when resident advisors or university police make this request. Please listen to the announcements.

O’Keefe Complex Lot

Parking in the O’Keefe lot is limited to commuter students and university staff. During snow emergencies, properly registered city residents living in the immediate vicinity of O’Keefe are allowed to park in this lot, as well. Unless specifically ordered by university police, no resident student parking is allowed in the O’Keefe lot at any time.

North Campus Parking Garage

Parking garage spots are limited to commuter students. Unless specifically ordered by university police, no resident student parking is allowed in the garage at any time.

Student Overnight Visitors

Overnight visitor parking is allowed from 5 pm until 
7 am, at which time ALL overnight guests must remove their cars from campus parking lots. Overnight guests, accompanied by their resident student host, must register their vehicles with university police and display a temporary parking permit on their dashboard. University police will direct guests to a specific parking lot based on where the guest will be staying. Overnight guests may be required to move their cars to facilitate snow removal.
