In response, residential students have begun to move their vehicles to the Frog Alley Parking Garage. The visitor’s side of the garage has been open to students.

“There is no guarantee of space,” said Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Kathryn Cavins-Tull in an email to all faculty, students and staff. “ [The parking spaces] will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.”

All classes and on-campus activities have been cancelled as of 3 p.m. Wednesday afternoon due to the expected severe weather. All on-campus activities and classes will continue at their scheduled times on Thursday.

Students, faculty and staff have been advised to seek shelter on the lowest floor in interior stairways and hallways, avoid rooms with exterior windows and to find shelter in sturdy buildings.
