The University will delay opening until 10 a.m. on Tuesday, January 16, because the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for all or part of the New York City area and is forecasting a mixture of snow and rain beginning in the New York City area from the evening of Monday, January 15, into midday Tuesday, January 16.

All classes that begin before 10 a.m. are cancelled. The University otherwise remains on its normal schedule, but members of the University community should exercise caution while walking on campus, and avoid walking near or under large trees. Facilities staff will be on hand to clear snow from campus walkways and roads by opening time.

The Office of the Provost is in contact with all deans to provide instructions for students and faculty affected by the delayed opening or weather. Staff who are affected by the delayed opening or weather should check with their supervisors for direction.

The first Ram Van departs Rose Hill at 8 a.m. Tuesday, and from Lincoln Center at 9 a.m. The first Ram Van departs from Rose Hill for the Calder Center at 1 p.m. Transit time between campuses may be longer than usual.
