The University strongly recommends that employees use public transportation during any weather conditions which may increase driving risks, particularly snowy or icy roads.
When a City of Providence parking ban is in effect, an employee who is not registered for parking in an official University lot may seek off-street parking on a space available basis in either ( Lot 2) the Nelson Fitness Center parking lot on Hope Street, or ( Lot 88 ) the Brown Stadium on Elmgrove Ave.
Space is limited and unpredictable factors such as weather conditions and the total number of employees desiring off-street parking make it impossible to guarantee parking availability.
If a gate arm is left open this does not mean the lot is opened to any one other than assigned parking patrons. The Transportation Office will lift gate arms due to icy or cold weather condtions or equipment mechanics. Parking policies will be strictly enforced.
