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 alternative modes to get to UMASS (bus, walk, carpool, etc)

3. 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.
