Snow and Ice Removal

Winter safety work on Brandon University’s campus is very important to us.  Our grounds crew works to clear ice and snow from primary walkways, common spaces and stairways by 8:30 am.  Primary areas include wheel chair ramps, building entrances, fire exits and high traffic walkways.

Our crews do their best to clear ice and snow as quickly as possible, but remember to stay safe by practicing safe winter walking. Please enjoy this video :
