Campus Closure 3/14 - Student Services Update

UPDATE to Campus Closing Supplement – Available Student Services, March 14, 2017

We have paid close attention to the severe winter weather throughout the day. As this storm continues we have reassessed the needs of our students and the safety of our dedicated staff. Taking into account the conditions of the roadways, prompting many of the local municipalities to declare a state of emergency and issue travel bans, we will close Father’s in the Rensselaer Union at 5:00 PM today.

Moe’s Southwest Grill will remain open until 7:00 PM and is the only location on campus food will be served for the remained of the day. If you need food tonight, please plan accordingly.

Visit for Institute messages regarding the campus closure.

Please be safe. While winter weather can provide opportunities for fun activities, these extreme conditions pose a very real health threat. Do not take travel risks; dress for the severe conditions if you must go outdoors.

We will provide updates on student services as they become available.
