Due to the impending snowstorm, the university will close at 11 a.m. Monday (Jan.
26) for students, faculty and non-essential staff. All classes scheduled to start
after 11 a.m. Monday are canceled. While the residence halls will remain open with
limited services, residential students are strongly advised to return home Monday
if they are safely able to do so. With blizzard-like conditions expected as the storm
intensifies late Monday through Tuesday, movement around campus to Connecticut Hall
and other locations will be difficult. The university will remain closed Tuesday during
the height of the storm. Wednesday's status will be announced once the extent of
the cleanup after the storm is known.
