Campus Winter Storm Plan Preparation

UPDATE: Storm Preparation for Resident Students

PARKING FOR RESIDENT STUDENTS: Our appreciation is extended to resident students who have been extremely cooperative throughout our snow emergencies. Due to the impending storm, RIC asks all resident students to move their vehicles to parking lots J and I by 6 p.m. on Sunday. Resident students will be notified on Monday when to move their cars back to parking lot L.  If a student has mechanical trouble with his vehicle notify campus police immediately at 401-456-8201. Towing and ticketing will still be in effect until we complete the move back to L lot.

As with the uncertainly with any winter storm faculty, staff, and students are urged to consult the college’s website for updates.  It is also recommended that all campus constituents register for college notification systems. For more information on the RICAlert system, click here.

Please exercise caution when walking and driving on campus.
