Notice: Full parking ban starts at midnight, Jan. 3

Due to the pending snowstorm, a full parking ban goes into effect at midnight tonight, Wednesday, Jan. 3 and will remain in effect until it is lifted.

To ensure efficient snow removal operations and the safety of the campus community, public safety and facilities operations ask for your cooperation.

Here’s what is meant by a full parking ban and where you may park:

Full Ban => No Parking on

  • Any roadway or roadside on the Kingston or Narragansett Bay campuses
  • Fraternity Circle roadway and roadside parking from Rte. 138 to Quarry Road

Be aware of these areas and park appropriately in approved locations. Vehicles parked in an area where no parking is permitted during a parking ban will be ticketed and/or towed at the owner’s expense.
