Inclement weather update: December 15, 2020 4:00 pm
During the past several months, the university has rolled out hybrid learning technology in classrooms, and transitioned many business activities to be performed remotely when necessary. While in-person learning and work remains a priority, the demonstrated ability of students, faculty, and staff to learn and work remotely has reduced the need for delayed starts, class cancellations, and administrative office closures.
The safety and wellbeing of our community remains our number one priority. In cases of severe inclement weather, the university will make every effort to maintain continuity of all academic and business operations. Some operations—such as Facilities, Public Safety and Covid testing—are deemed essential and will be prioritized.
Please note the status of academic and business operations planned for Thursday:
- Cabot Testing Center: Open during normal hours of operation (7:00 am – 4:00 pm ET). Due to the timing of the storm, if you are planning to schedule a test for Thursday, we encourage you to choose an afternoon time slot. Please note that it may take longer to receive a result if you choose to be tested on Thursday due to potential delay in sample transportation.
- Huntington Testing Center: Open during normal hours of operation (10:00 am – 4:00 pm).
- Dining: Please check the NU Dining website for the latest updates on hours of operation at each location https://www.nudining.com/public/hours and follow on social media @NUDining
- Snell Library: Open during normal business hours.
- Marino and Squashbusters athletic facilities: Both will be closed consistent with new public health guidelines.
Important reminder: all final exams are given online this semester.
- Faculty who are experiencing disruptions due to the impact of inclement weather at their current location, and are unable to maintain their class schedules as planned, should coordinate with their students and department heads as soon as possible to make the necessary changes.
- Students who are experiencing disruptions due to the impact of inclement weather at their current location should coordinate with their professors as soon as possible to discuss options.
- Staff whose work functions are best performed on campus but are unable to safely commute to campus during inclement weather, should coordinate with their supervisors.
Students: Please remember to check the weather and road conditions, and check your flight status if you are planning to travel home on Thursday. Your safety and wellbeing should always take priority. If you need to change your travel plans, please update your Departure Form in Housing Online.
The university monitors the weather closely and will provide updates to the campus community via email, social media, and the university homepage. All updates and information can also be found atwww.northeastern.edu/emergency.
