Attention Huskies! We just received official word that the university will close today, January 2, at 2:00PM and remain closed through tomorrow, January 3. This snow storm is due to intensify later in the day. From NU’s emergency alert webpage:
The significant snowstorm underway is expected to result in more than a foot of snow in the greater Boston area. To ensure the safety of our faculty and staff — and in accordance with state and local government recommendations — the university will close at 2 p.m. today (Thursday).
The university will be CLOSED tomorrow (Friday) as the storm is expected to continue throughout the morning hours. The safety of our community is our top priority, and keeping non-essential operations closed will ensure that our facilities crews can manage the effects of the storm and maintain a safe campus.
Student move-in will continue as scheduled; dining services and residence halls will continue to be fully operational throughout today and Friday. All campus events will go on as scheduled on Saturday and Sunday. Northeastern’s Charlotte, North Carolina and Seattle, Washington campuses will remain open.
Parents and new students should also refer to www.northeastern.edu/orientation for additional updates related to move-in.
We are closely monitoring the forecast and will continue to update the university community on important developments through various channels, including email, text message, social media, and the university homepage. Please monitor this Northeastern emergency website where all weather-related updates will be posted as well.
