Residence Hall Snow Removal: Parking and More

All Campus Residence Hall Villages Students and Staff with Vehicles Parked On Campus:

Millersville University is in the impact zone for the predicted snow storm from late tonight through Friday morning. 

Plans have been made for the orderly clearing/treating of parking lots and sidewalks/walkways on campus, including the residence hall lots. Please read the following and take advantage of the offer:

  1. Residence Hall Students with Residential parking permits (blue lined spaces) are invited to move vehicles from the residence hall parking lots to the parking garage at Cottage Avenue and Prince Street here on campus. This is up the Cottage Avenue hill from the Winter Center and next to the baseball field and Jefferson Building. Please do not confuse this with any parking structure in the city of Lancaster. This is right here on campus. Moving to this location provides a convenient covered space for your vehicle that will keep it free of snow and ice while the grounds crew works on clearing the residence hall lots and walkways.
  2. There is limited space in this garage structure so availability will be on a first-come-first-served basis. You must have a residential parking permit for campus. Please note that the bottom floor of the parking garage is reserved for MU vehicles. Additionally, there is no parking on the upper deck of the parking garage given there will be no snow removal from the top floor. Restrictions for the MU Prince Street parking garage will be lifted until 8:00 AM on Monday, February 22, 2021. You must move your car back to the residence hall parking lot by that day and time.
  3. This offer does not include the parking garage near the football stadium. That parking garage is not open for residence hall vehicle relocation at this time so please do not park there.
  4. Vehicles parked parallel to sidewalks/walkways or with front or back end of vehicle over the line of a sidewalk/walkway must move so that the vehicle does not protrude over or rest directly on or too close to the sidewalk/walkway. Vehicles parked in a manner that impinges the sidewalk/walkway obstruct snow removal equipment operation and the ability to adequately clear the sidewalks.  To avoid possible vehicle damage and assure your vehicle does not impede snow removal please be certain it is not parked in a manner that impinges the sidewalks/walkways.

This will assist the Facilities and Grounds crews to clear the lots and you won’t need to shovel your vehicle out since the Prince Street parking deck is covered.
