Salsbury Dining Hall will be closed after Lunch, December 9th, and will reopen for J-Term (Interim) with Breakfast, January 4th. Cooper’s Café will also be closed between Dec 9th – Jan 3rd.

Parking Information for Snow Removal 

Residential students who plan to leave for break and have intentions of leaving a car parked on campus will need to make sure your vehicle is moved to one of the outer parking spaces in either parking lot A (Stewart Center) or parking lot J (Collier Baker/Kroske Residence Hall) to avoid the potential need to move your car in the event the lots need to be cleared of snow during the break.  Cars that need to be moved will be charged up to $100 in charges for towing.  

Residence Halls

Campus Safety & Security and Residence Life staff will be available throughout the break.  We will text, email and post on the app throughout the break if campus needs students to move cars for the snowplows to clear the lots. If leaving for the break, please remove any perishable food from your room, take out your trash, unplug your appliances, lock your door, and close your windows.
