Winter storm warning for Rochester

March 2, 2018

Due to the winter storm, the University’s River Campus and Eastman School of Music campus will delay opening today until 10 am.

Facilities crews have been working to clear campus roadways and parking lots, and the University is continuously monitoring the travel conditions.

Strong Memorial Hospital and its health services affiliates will remain fully operational. The Memorial Art Gallery is closed for the day to the public, but open for essential staff.

Barnes & Noble Bookstore and Café at College Town will not be opening today.

For updates on the status of individual classes throughout the day, students should check for email or Blackboard announcements. Classes at the School of Nursing will also be delayed until 10 am.

All essential University staff should report to work on a normal schedule unless otherwise notified. All Medical Center employees – whether at Elmwood Avenue or any off-site location – are considered essential staff and are required to report even during severe weather unless notified otherwise by your supervisor. If you are unable to report to work or unsure of your status, you must contact your supervisor.

If you are planning to attend any other University of Rochester event today, check with the event provider to determine if the event will still proceed.

University shuttles will be running according to schedule today. Delays can be expected, however, due to the weather. You can also check the bus schedules on the UR phone app.

For emergency assistance on campus, call #413 from a Verizon or AT&T cell phone; 275-3333 from any phone; or call 911.
