As we enter the winter break and the potential for snow removal, the Trim parking lot has been designated for resident student vehicles that have valid parking permits.  We ask that any resident student vehicles left on campus during this time be parked in the center rows of the Trim lot starting at the Map Hill Drive end of the lot, in rows A1 through A3 and rows B1 through B3, up to the center island and avoid perimeter rows in order to facilitate snow removal.  The far right side of Trim lot closest to Olin College will be blocked off with barricades and tape over the winter season so the Facilities team can remove and properly store all snow.  We ask that you avoid parking in this area.

Woodland Hill residents leaving for the semester break are asked to park in the Woodland Hill lot during this time and not around the roadway.  

Student vehicles cannot be parked in the BECC Garage as they will be ticketed and towed.

Babson College does not provide covered parking for students.  

Babson College assumes no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage to any vehicles being left on campus for the break.

Commuter students are not permitted to leave their vehicles on campus over the winter break as we have limited spaces available.

Faculty and Staff who plan to leave a vehicle on campus during the break must also park in the Trim parking lot so that the Facilities team can clear other lots as necessary.

Thank you for your cooperation, if you have questions or concerns regarding this message please direct them to parkingclerk@babson.edu.
