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

Please allow ample time before calling for emergency service if the complaint is due to delayed response by the Hinman elevators.
