This is the university’s official site for emergency planning and procedures. During an emergency, updates will be posted here.
Status Update: February 27, 2020 at 5:56 AM
The University at Buffalo is open and following its regular academic schedule and university operations for Thursday, Feb. 27.
University officials continue to monitor weather conditions and will provide updates as needed. Check departmental websites for any specific changes to events on campus. University Facilities will be working to keep campus sidewalks and roadways clear.
If you are traveling to, from or on campus, be cautious, prepare for hazardous road conditions and make all decisions with your personal safety in mind.
UB Alerts will be sent to the university community if changes to the academic and operational schedule are made due to weather conditions.
INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS:
Information for students about what to do if weather prevents them from coming to campus for classes is available at http://www.buffalo.edu/administrative-services/emergency-management/emergency-procedures.weather.html#classes
INFORMATION FOR EMPLOYEES:

When conditions become so severe that the university cannot operate effectively, a decision may be made to change scheduled operations, resulting in class cancellations, early departure for nonessential employees or, in rare cases, a closing.
Timely and accurate announcements regarding changes in UB’s scheduled operations will be made via our emergency communication channels.
Do not call 911 or University Police for general information during an emergency, as this will delay response to the emergency. This site will provide new details as quickly as possible.
