University Cancellation and Delays
Closing or delayed start announcements affecting day classes/activities will be made by 5:30 a.m.
In the event we are closed for the day, we will alert the University community mid-day regarding the status of evening classes/activities that begin at 4 p.m. or later (unless already announced).
Announcements will be listed on the following outlets:

Please call 617-573-8262 for updated messages. Do not call the University Police Department, switchboard, administrative offices, or radio or television stations to verify if Suffolk's closed.
- When classes are delayed or canceled, the cancellation will apply to the entire University, including all three schools – Arts & Sciences, Business School, and Law School – as well as libraries and all University activities (Student Affairs, athletic events, performances, etc.).
- Online classes are typically not canceled due to weather.
- Weekend and holiday closings or delays will be handled in the same manner as weekdays.
