This site is designed to promote campus safety by providing information and resources to students, faculty, staff, and visitors of Eastern Connecticut State University. In addition to notices of current campus incidents, weather cancellations, or other emergency conditions, this page also provides information and resources ranging from links to on-campus departments to links to off-campus municipal services. It also provides access to “Eastern Alert,” the University’s emergency notification system.
Cancellations and Delays
Last updated: Sunday, February 12, 2017, 6:23 p.m.
Due to inclement weather, the University will have a delayed opening and will open at noon on Monday, February 13th. Check back on this webpage for additional weather-related updates.
ADDITION TO WEATHER CLOSING POLICY:
“In the event of a delayed opening of the University, any class that would have at least 45 minutes of meeting time remaining after the announced opening time will meet starting at the announced opening time. Any class meeting that would have fewer than 45 minutes of meeting time after the announced opening time will not meet. For example, if opening the campus is delayed until 10 a.m., classes running from 9:30-10:45 a.m. would meet from 10-10:45 a.m.
In the event of an early closing of the University, any class that would have at least 45 minutes of meeting time prior to the announced closing time will meet until the announced closing time. Any class meeting that would have fewer than 45 minutes of meeting time before the announced closing time will not meet. For example, if we were to close the University early at 3 p.m., classes running from 2-3:15 p.m. would meet from 2-3 p.m.”
