Snow Removal Policy

Winter snows have historically presented unique obstacles to campus access for students with mobility impairments. The University at Buffalo (UB) recognizes its obligation to ensure proper and consistent snow removal to allow access for students with mobility impairments to all programs, services, and activities on both North and South campuses. In an effort to achieve consistent access for students with mobility impairments during the snow season, UB outlines this formal policy for snow removal.

Each semester, UB's Accessibility Resources (AR) will collect campus travel routes from students whose requests for snow removal have been approved. AR shares this route information with University Facilities to identify key areas for early and extra snow clearing. This information will be used to ensure our paths and walkways are clear and usable to individuals with disabilities during snow conditions.
