Feb. 17, 2015 5:22 a.m.

Because of severe weather, Princeton University will delay opening for non-essential personnel today until 10 a.m. However, classes will be held as scheduled.

Only employees in essential services roles should report for shifts requiring them to work before 10 a.m., and they should park in their normal, assigned spaces.

The Office of Admission "Tiger Tuesday" program will proceed as scheduled.

Individual faculty members who decide to cancel their classes based on the guidance offered on the Dean of the Faculty website should notify their students through Blackboard in advance of the scheduled class time. 

TigerTransit buses are running on a normal schedule.

Campus libraries are open. Recreation facilities will open at 10 a.m. 

The Frist Campus Center is open, as are residential dining halls.

Updates will be posted on the University homepage and on the SNOW line, (609)-258-SNOW, as soon as new information is available.

Members of the University community can manage how they receive non-emergency messages, including weather-related notifications, via the Princeton Telephone and Email Notification System (PTENS).  PTENS allows authorized Princeton officials to send information simultaneously to individuals via landline phones, cellular phones, text messages and e-mail.
