The University of Rhode Island works to provide safe and healthy campuses for its students, faculty, staff and visitors. This Alert page is where community members will find factual and timely information related to emergency situations, power outages, weather alerts and other campus notices.

Current Status

April 4, 2016

Notice: Classes starting at 6 p.m. and later are canceled, April 4, 2016

On all campuses, all classes and labs that start at 6 p.m. and later are canceled on Monday, April 4. All online classes will be held as scheduled. The concert at the Ryan Center will be held as scheduled.

A partial parking ban is in effect from 6 p.m. tonight to 8 a.m. tomorrow.

Due to lower than normal temperatures, the National Weather Service suggests a higher risk for snow sticking to area roadways during the peak commute time this evening. Please keep this in mind as you prepare to depart campus and head home.

Recognizing these conditions for tomorrow, we encourage all community members to allow ample time for commuting to and from classes and to be prepared for slippery driving and walking conditions – especially after the potential freezing conditions overnight.

As conditions may vary widely across the region, the University urges individuals to use their best judgement in deciding whether it is safe to travel to campus.
