We will continue to closely monitor the storm and advise the community of any changes in University operations or closing announcements through the University’s emergency alert system and on www.suffolk.edu.

Closing and delay announcements will be made on WBZ-TV and WBZ radio; WHDH-TV 7News; WCVB-TV, Channel 5; FOX25-TV Boston; and the Rhode Island Broadcasters Association. Updated messages also are available at 866-312-2632. Do not call the University Police Department, switchboard, administrative offices, radio, or television stations to verify University closing.
