Connecticut College is OPEN on Friday, Feb. 10 / by Connecticut College

Connecticut College officially reopens Friday, Feb. 10, at 8 a.m. All administrative offices will be open, and classes will resume as scheduled.

NOTE: Knowlton Dining Hall is closed on Friday.

Facilities crews have been working very hard to clear the campus, and they will continue this work throughout the night. With the unusually high volume of snow and very strong winds, it won’t be perfect, but I am very pleased with the progress we’ve made. Please allow yourself extra time and use caution when moving about the campus.

The parking ban on the main campus will remain in effect until 8 a.m., as our crews continue to clear walkways, roadways and parking areas. On Friday, our trustees will be on campus and we have reserved a number of spaces for them in front of the library and Cro. Faculty and staff: Please remember there are lots near the Plex if you’re having trouble finding a parking space.

We recognize that road conditions will vary depending on where faculty and staff live. To meet the service needs of the College, it is important that staff make every reasonable effort to report for work as scheduled. If a staff member chooses not to travel due to inclement weather, that decision — which must be communicated to the employee’s supervisor as soon as possible — will be respected. Vacation pay, if available, will be substituted for this lost time; otherwise the time will be taken without pay.
