Temporary changes to snow removal procedure
For the winter of 2020-2021 the Binghamton University grounds department is modifying snow removal procedures in an effort to reduce the amount of overtime hours needed. We have identified parking lots, roadways, and sidewalks that do not affect access to buildings. These will be cordoned off accordingly from public access. From Nov. 30, 2020 to Feb. 3, 2021 the following, dependent on the severity of each storm, will not be an immediate priority and will be cleared of snow only during regularly scheduled working hours.
-East Gym Ramp
-Sidewalk below Lot S2 & S3
-G1 perimeter sidewalk
-Lot W (upper portion only)
Campus Mail Services package delays/no outgoing mail
Campus Mail Services is currently processing student packages manually by hand. This will result in a 1-2 day delay from when students receive notification from the shipper. At this time, no email notifications are able to be sent by CMS. Students are able to inquire at the package pick-up window about their packages. Clerks will assist to deliver what has been processed. In addition, CMS is unable to process outgoing mail at this time until affected servers are restored. We ask for your patience and thank you for your understanding.
