Snow/Ice Removal Operations in Progress – Winter Storm Warning Through Tuesday
February 15, 2021 12:14 PM

A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect for Champaign and surrounding counties until 6 a.m. on Tuesday. Total snow accumulation of between 4 to 8 inches is anticipated as part of this storm system, along with winds gusting up to 25 mph.

Your patience and cooperation are appreciated as Facilities & Services staff perform snow and ice removal to keep the campus open and accessible by clearing sidewalks, building entrances, pathways, bike lanes, parking lots, and roads throughout the winter weather event.

Please exercise caution if you must travel during this period. The snowfall will make for slippery road and sidewalk conditions and hazardous travel. Blowing and drifting snow will likely cause slick spots and some persistent snow/ice areas.

Snow Priority Parking Lots

As a reminder, the following priority parking lots will be cleared first and regularly maintained during the event. Individuals are encouraged to use these lots along with MTD service until smaller lots are cleared: 

  • Lot B4, Levels Four and Five (North Campus) Parking facility at the corner of University Avenue and Mathews Avenue
  • Shuttle Lot E14 (South Campus) – West of the State Farm Center, south end only
  • Lot F27 (South Campus) – Adjacent to the Veterinary Medicine Basic Sciences Building

Vehicles parked in priority lots B4, E14, and F27 with a valid virtual permit for other rental facilities will not be cited for violations.

More information about university snow/ice removal efforts is available at To report areas for treatment or if you have questions, contact the F&S Service Office, 217-333-0340.
