The University of Massachusetts Boston has set up a Winter Storm Center to ensure any concerns you may have about the operations of the university during extreme weather conditions are addressed. Email stormcenter@umb.edu with any concerns, comments, or feedback. Your emails will be reviewed and addressed in a timely manner, and senior university administrators will be made aware of problems so they can move quickly to address them.

Our goal is to assist you in making the commute to campus as smooth as possible. Below are some links to the MBTA schedules, UMass Boston Health Services, and more tools to help with any winter struggles.
