The U of L Grounds team is monitoring the weather and is acting as quickly as possible to keep pathways and roads on campus clear.

Here are a number of resources to further inform you about the weather conditions:

How does the U of L Grounds team handle bad weather?

The Grounds department snow removal procedure lists clearing main pathways as the first priority to allow pedestrians to access the University. Once the walkways are done, workers then attend to the parking lots.

While the department will work diligently to ensure campus is safe to walk around, everyone should be extra cautious when walking outside during inclement weather.

Please obey all signage at path closures. They are blocked off for safety reasons and will reopen once workers have time to clear the area.

To report snow or ice concerns call the Facilities Service Desk at 403-329-2602.
