University Monitoring Winter Weather and Travel Conditions for Today and Tuesday, Feb. 16
Syracuse University is monitoring weather conditions pertaining to the Winter Storm Warning issued for today through the afternoon of Tuesday, Feb. 16. This effort includes reviewing the most up-to-date National Weather Service data and forecasting, and consulting with an independent meteorologist about what to expect.
Based on current conditions, the University expects to remain open and operational today (Monday, Feb. 15) and Tuesday, Feb. 16.
Although Syracuse University rarely closes for inclement weather, individuals must make personal decisions based on a risk assessment related to travel. Employees are encouraged to take precautions and use good judgment when traveling to/from work. Faculty and staff concerned about their safety should contact their department chair or supervisor, respectively.
Any change in the University’s operating status will be announced via the University’s emergency broadcast notification system and will carry the notice SU WEATHER ALERT. Please be sure your Orange Alert settings are always up to date in MySlice.
SU WEATHER ALERT information will be announced via the following communications channels:
- via campus email;
- via text message;
- via a “crawl” on campus TV monitors and University websites;
- on Twitter: @SUCampus, @SyracuseUNews and @SyracuseDPS;
- on Facebook: @SUCampus, @SyracuseUniversityNews and @SyracuseDPS;
- on news.syr.edu and Syracuse.edu; and
- via Syracuse University public radio station WAER-FM/88.3 and other local media outlets.
Only Syracuse University’s Internal Communications and Media Relations teams are authorized to transmit to the news media and the campus community announcements about closings, work-schedule changes or class-start delays.
