UB is open today, March 2, 2016

Published March 2, 2016 at 5:45 AM

The University at Buffalo is open and following its regular operational and academic schedule for Wednesday, March 2. Officials are monitoring weather conditions and will provide updates as needed.

University Facilities crews have applied ample salt on surfaces at North and South campuses and will continue to do so throughout the day as warranted by the weather conditions.

Please use caution when traveling to and from campus during inclement weather. Check departmental websites for any specific changes to public events.

 It is understood that students, faculty and staff living in areas severely affected by weather may be unable to travel to campus. Members of the campus community should use their best judgment in assessing the risk of coming to campus and returning home based on individual circumstances.

Students should work with their instructors, and staff with their supervisors, if they cannot safely get to classes and work.

Faculty will provide reasonable accommodations for students who miss classes due to a storm.  Faculty members unable to travel to campus are responsible for making alternate arrangements with their students.
