Inclement Weather Procedure

From: Lynne C. Schaefer, Vice President for Administration and Finance

Winter is upon us. So that we can all be prepared, this would be a good time to review UMBC’s Inclement Weather Procedures, posted at

Note there are important changes to parking procedures during inclement weather, noted in the parking section. Also, a phased snow removal plan, with campus map showing the general approach used to clear campus roadways, parking lots and walkways, has been developed and can be found at

During inclement weather events, you will find up-to-date information posted on the UMBC homepage and myUMBC. The campus hotline phone number is 410-455-6789 or ext. 5-6789 from on campus, and will be updated as situations change during such events as well.

I also encourage you to sign up for E2Campus, an emergency alert text-messaging system that will permit the University to notify you regarding any campus-related emergency (such as potential campus safety hazards or campus closures due to weather). The system is compatible with mobile phones, Blackberries, “smart phones,” satellite phones, e-mail, wireless PDAs and pagers. Normal text-messaging rates apply. There are no additional charges. Please sign up for this important service today at

Thank you.
