Winter Parking Policy

Facilities Services will determine the exact date that the Winter Parking Policy will be activated and remain in effect throughout the winter months.  This will occur during the late fall semester and will be announced by email, signage, and a SUNS alert.  The following rules apply when this policy is activated.


  • All "Perimeter Road" parking will be prohibited.
  • All "Commuter Lots" MUST be cleared of vehicles between the hours of 2am and 7am, each morning.
  • Vehicles parked in "Temporary" and "Handicap" spots on campus and in Northwoods must be moved to accommodate plowing activities.


In the event Facilities Services determines that parking lots on campus require the removal of snow accumulation the "Emergency Snow Removal Plan" will be activated.

  • When "The Emergency Snow Removal Plan" is activated the community will be notified by email, signage, and the Skidmore Urgent Notification System (SUNs).
  • The following table provides the parking schedule when the "Emergency Snow Removal Plan" is activated:
