At around 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 20, the University announced that the campus would close due to snow “at noon today for non-essential personnel.”

“Classes will be held as scheduled,” read an email sent out via Tiger Alert. “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.”


Frist Campus Center, all residential dining halls, and TigerTransit buses will run on normal schedules.

According to the University’s careers website, essential personnel comprise staff from numerous departments that are vital to the University’s safety and operation. These departments include University Health Services, Facilities, Public Safety and University Services.

The University expects to reopen at 6 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21. All non-essential University employees working at 6 a.m. or later are required to return to campus.

According to the Tiger Alert email, the University will provide updates on the homepage and on the SNOW line, (609)-258-SNOW, as information becomes available.
