When classes and activities held at the Boston campus are canceled because of snow or other emergencies, the university will announce cancelations beginning at 6 a.m. The university main telephone line, 617.287.5000, will carry a taped announcement when the university is closed or opening late. The bulletin board at UMass Boston's website will contain weather announcements.
Additionally, please check local media stations, i.e. radio, TV (see below). They will also carry cancellation announcements 6–7 a.m., Monday through Saturday.
In the event that on-campus classes are canceled due to weather conditions, please note that online classes are NOT canceled.
Decisions about cancelations at off-campus sites are made by the local facility, not by the university. Students taking classes at off-campus sites should listen for radio announcements concerning the closing of those locations.
