Re: Amended Advisory about the Snowstorm – NYU to Be Open as Normal

An earlier version of this alert should have noted that NYC public schools are closed today, but not due to weather related issues; they are closed for a scheduled school holiday.

When a snow or weather event occurs on a public school holiday, the University will be guided by announcements concerning the New York City bus and subway service.

A revised version of the message is below.
–The NYU Office of Public Affairs

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for New York City and the Department of Sanitation has issued a snow alert for today. No announcements have been made about suspending NYC bus or subway service (the public schools are closed today for a scheduled school holiday).

In keeping with the guidelines we have announced, NYU will be open, with all classes, activities, and operations proceeding on their normal schedule.

In all cases, please use good judgment about your ability to travel safely, and be in touch with your supervisor or professor is there is an issue.

The University will continue to monitor the storm. We don't anticipate any changes, but if there are any, NYU will communicate through email, its main social media channels (Facebook and Twitter), and the Info Alert page.

Travel safely. Stay warm.
