RWU Alert: Thursday Classes/Events Cancelled Starting at 5:00 pm; Other Operations Normal

Message posted on Thursday, March 5, at 3:35 pm

In response to the snow currently affecting the Bristol area, the entirety of the Roger Williams University campus will move to Operating Level 3 beginning at 5:00 pm today.

This means that all classes and significant events scheduled to begin at 5:00 pm or later on Thursday are cancelled. This includes all undergraduate, graduate, law and continuing studies classes in both Bristol and Providence.

All other University operations remain open as usual.

Students are asked to check email for possible messages from instructors related to class assignments.

In addition, a full-scale Extended Winter Parking Ban will begin at 7 pm. The ban includes the entire inner campus along with Lot H (Lower Old Ferry) and Lot D (School of Law/North Residence Hall). All vehicles on campus after 7 pm should be parked in Lot A (near the Parking Garage) or where permitted on the first two levels of the parking garage. If those areas are filled, then parking is authorized in Lot C (near Bayside).

The parking ban will expire at 7 am on Friday morning for all students and employees traveling to campus tomorrow.
