It is the general policy of the university not to cancel classes because of inclement weather. However, because of the occasional hazards of night driving in the winter, exceptions may be made for evening classes and, under exceptionally hazardous conditions, exceptions may be made for daytime classes.
If weather conditions make it necessary to cancel classes, a message will be available by dialing "0" from campus locations; through the RU-info
Channel on RU-tv 3; from the Rutgers University main page at https://www.rutgers.edu/status. and from the RU-info Call Center at 732-445-info (4636). Announcements will also be made over the following radio stations: WRNJ (1510 AM), WCTC (1450 AM)/WMGQ (98.3 FM), WCBS (880 AM), WINS (1010 AM), WKXW (101.5 FM)/WBUD (1260 AM), WRSU (88.7 FM), and NEWS12 (cable).
In addition, class cancellation and office closing information is available on the recorded message system at 973-353-1766 for Rutgers University-Newark campus, or at https://www.newark.rutgers.edu/weather-and-campus-operating-status.
