Snow and ice removal on campus

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

The winter season is upon us, and Facilities Management is working to keep the campus open and accessible.

During and after the recent winter storm, crews have been working around-the-clock to clear the building entrances, streets, sidewalks, and parking lots. Depending on weather conditions, it may take a few days to completely clear the campus. Priority is always given to the hospital and ambulatory care areas, ADA entrances and parking spaces for persons with disabilities, emergency routes, and public walkways.

Use the 24/7 phone number, 5-SNOW (312-355-7669) to report any snow- or ice-related problems on campus. Please provide the following information: location; time; and a phone number or e-mail address for follow-up, if desired.

Your patience and consideration are appreciated while our crews do their best to clear the snow and ice.

Michael Landek
Interim Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services
