April 16: Heavy snow closes Oval; use caution if on campus

Due to the heavy, wet spring snowfall, employees who are reporting to a campus to perform essential, in-person duties and students still living on campus are advised not to park under trees along streets or in parking lots. Do not to walk under trees; limbs are loaded with snow and may break.

Oval Drive is closed to vehicle traffic, and the Oval is closed to foot traffic; do not drive, walk or bike inside the Oval.

Facilities Management is clearing snow from sidewalk and street routes, including near residence halls where students are living and around buildings that house essential functions.

Please be cautious while traveling to and around any university campus.

Safety tips for on or off campus:

  • Report to police anyone who is behaving suspiciously by calling or texting 911 from campus to reach CSUPD, or 911 off campus to reach Fort Collins Police Services. Report concerns immediately, so police can follow up while the person who is behaving suspiciously may still be in the area.
  • Keep your residence hall, apartment or home doors and windows locked when you are away from home and at night. Keep your blinds or curtains drawn for privacy.
  • Residence halls and many apartment buildings have multiple levels of security; do not allow anyone to “tailgate” into a residence hall or apartment building behind you after using your keycard or key to get entrance into a building or floor.
