Snow Emergency Policy for Overnight Permit Holders
Whenever the City of Boston declares a snow emergency, the snow emergency will apply to all holders of overnight parking permits. The declaration of a snow emergency will impact Northeastern University by prohibiting vehicles with overnight permits from parking in any surface lot. During declared snow emergencies, overnight permit holders will be required to move their vehicle to the Renaissance Park and Columbus Garages. The snow emergency policy will remain in effect until lifted by the City of Boston.

The City of Boston announces snow emergencies on all the major radio and television stations in the city. It is the responsibility of overnight permit holders to listen to the major radio and television stations for the announcements whenever snow is expected.  For more information on Snow Emergencies visit the City of Boston website: http://www.cityofboston.gov/snow/

Parking overnight in the Columbus Garage and Renaissance Park Garage is available only to Students, Faculty and Staff whose vehicle displays a valid overnight parking permit.

Vehicles left parked in the surface lots during a declared snow emergency are subject to being towed without warning and at the owner’s expense. The University does not assume responsibility or liability for any lost property or damage associated with a vehicle being towed.

Late Night Parking
If you plan to be on campus after 11 PM, your vehicle must be moved to a lot that remains open until at least 2 AM. The hours of each lot are posted at the entrance. There is no overnight parking without a permit. Vehicles remaining after that time may be towed at the owner’s expense.
