When classes are delayed or cancelled, the cancellation will apply to the entire University, including all three schools—the College of Arts and Sciences, Sawyer Business School, and the Law School—as well as the libraries and all other University activities (student affairs, performances, etc.). To determine whether athletic events will be held, please consult the Athletics Department’s website or call 617-573-8379.

Announcements of University delays and closings will be communicated via the emergency alert system (students must provide their contact information on the University portal), the information line at 617-573-8262, and the University’s home page, Every attempt will be made to communicate these announcements in a timely manner.

Weekend and holiday closings or delays, including the libraries, will be handled in the same manner as during the regular school week
