Columbia University has canceled classes for March 21, 2018, in light of updated forecasts predicting snowfall rates of 1 to 3 inches per hour starting as early as the morning commute and total snow accumulation of 12 to 15 inches. We encourage students to check in with their professors, as some classes may be held virtually via web conference.
Essential personnel are expected to report to work, consistent with University Policy. Please stay safe, exercise caution and allow extra travel time. Non-essential personnel who are able to travel safely to work are encouraged to do so, or should speak with a manager or supervisor about contingency plans if needed. If you have a question about your “essential status,” please check in with your supervisor.
