Dear WPI Community,

Yesterday’s snowfall is predicted to be followed by additional snow tomorrow, Wednesday, January 25, into Thursday the 26th. There is no expected impact on classes or campus operations.

However, in order to allow for snow clearing operations, we ask that all students, faculty, and staff move their cars as follows:

All student vehicles in residential lots must be moved to the Gateway Garage by 2 pm Wednesday, January 25.

The garage is now open to all students. As you approach, the entrance gate will automatically open. Students are not permitted to park in the Park Avenue Garage. If you moved your vehicle to Gateway Garage yesterday, you can simply keep it there. Please remove vehicles by 8 pm Thursday, January 26.

Employees working on campus Wednesday, January 25 are asked to use the Park Avenue, East Hall, or Gateway Garages.

All parking lots will reopen by 1 pm Thursday, January 26.

PLEASE NOTE: The City of Worcester will tow cars left on the street if there is a declared parking ban. The City has not yet declared a ban but will likely do so and we strongly suggest that students, faculty, and staff move their vehicles. For information regarding the City’s parking ban and to sign up for text alerts, go to:

WPI’s grounds team will work continuously to clear and maintain walkways and surface areas. However, we encourage everyone on the campus to use caution during inclement weather.

At this time, there is no change to the shuttle services or schedules. Should weather conditions worsen significantly, Campus Police will issue an update.

Should you find yourself in an on-campus emergency situation, please call WPI Campus Police at 508-831-5555.

Thank you,

WPI Campus Police
