Status Update: November 14, 2019 at 5:35 PM
Due to a relocation of a major national athletic event to UB’s North Campus, some parking lots and entrances to the North Campus will be temporarily impacted from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15.
UB is serving as host institution for the 2019 NCAA Northeast Cross Country Regionals. The original site for the event was the Audubon Golf Course in Amherst. However, due to inclement winter weather on Monday and into Tuesday, course conditions were impacted, creating hazardous conditions for the participants.
The course will start and finish near UB Stadium and will travel along sections of the following roadways: Audubon Parkway, White, Hadley, Rensch, Frontier, and Augspurger roads, and St. Rita’s Lane, as well as the Hamilton Road and Webster Road entrances.
Parking lots adjacent to these roads will be intermittently impacted during the race. Roadways will progressively open as runners get farther along the route.
The university’s goal is to maintain normal operations as much as possible. Please plan extra time during your travel around campus during this time.
Students, faculty and staff who have any questions can contact Parking & Transportation Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 645-3943.
Do not call 911 or University Police for general information during an emergency, as this will delay response to the emergency. This site will provide new details as quickly as possible.
When conditions become so severe that the university cannot operate effectively, a decision may be made to change scheduled operations, resulting in class cancellations, early departure for nonessential employees or, in rare cases, a closing.
Timely and accurate announcements regarding changes in UB’s scheduled operations will be made via our emergency communication channels.
