Parking Ban Information
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, community members who bring a car to campus and who have not paid for a parking pass for a University lot or have a parking pass for the on-street leased parking may report to one overflow parking lot: Lot 2, located off Hope Street (see map below). They may also pay for daily parking at the Power Street Garage, if available (see map below). Vehicles parked in any other University lot without a visible parking permit will be subject to being ticketed and/or towed. 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. Please note that if a gate arm is left open, this does NOT mean the lot is open to anyone 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.
