University officials monitoring winter storm expected to arrive overnight

Feb. 8, 2017 2:45 p.m.

With a major storm heading toward campus and expected to arrive overnight, Princeton University officials are monitoring forecasts and the storm's progress.

If the storm arrives in such intensity that it would affect University classes and other operations, the University community would be alerted in several ways Thursday morning.

A notice would be sent via the Princeton Telephone and E-Mail Notification System (PTENS) to the phones and e-mail addresses of those who have opted to receive such messages.

A notice would also be posted by 6 a.m. on the University homepage and on the SNOW line, 609-258-SNOW (7669).

Information on Princeton-area weather can be found at a number of sites on the University's weather resources page. The University also has a page with tips on preparing for and dealing with winter storms.

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. It is recommended that all students, faculty and staff check their notification settings to ensure email addresses, phone numbers and other information are current.
