Weather Emergencies

The University expects to remain open and in full operation regardless of weather conditions, transportation disruptions or other emergencies. Therefore, all employees are expected to make every reasonable effort to report to work during such conditions.

On rare occasions, weather or other extreme emergencies may cause the University to curtail operations, delay opening or close entirely. Such a determination is made by the President's Office with guidance from the University's emergency response team.

Once a decision is made, the University will make its operating status clear in the following ways:

1. Posting to NYU Alerts

2. Updating the NYU Information Hot-Line: (212) 998-1220

In addition, whenever possible, the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources will notify HR representatives of the operational status of the workplace.
