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.
Classes canceled until 10 a.m., March 2
On all campuses, classes and labs that start before 10 a.m. are canceled on Monday, March 2. Based on forecast conditions, classes that begin at 10 a.m. or later will be held as scheduled. As online classes do not meet face-to-face, they will continue as scheduled.
The following classes will delay start time until 10 a.m. and will end at their normally scheduled times: NUR 334 Sections 1 and 2, NUR 344 Sections 5 and 8, and MLS 195 Sections 250 and 251
A partial parking ban is in effect until 9 a.m. Vehicles parked in an area where no parking is permitted during a partial parking ban will be ticketed and/or towed at the owner’s expense. Per our protocol, the University will continue to monitor conditions.
Although crews are treating the walkways and roadways, expect slippery driving and walking conditions on- and off-campus tonight and tomorrow. We urge all community members to allow ample time for commuting to and from classes and to be prepared for the slippery (icy) driving and walking conditions that exist.
As weather and driving 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. Check for updates from the University and monitor local weather forecasts.
Please help us help you: We encourage faculty, staff and students to notify Facility Operations at 874-4060 (during business hours) if you need assistance or if there are any areas on campus that need attention. Evening calls can be made to the non-emergency police line at 874-4910. If you have any fire safety concerns, call 874-7994.
Employees: URI offices will be open and staff members are expected to report to work. All non-essential staff who wish to stay at home will be required to discharge time under the inclement weather protocol, if they wish to be compensated.
