Snow Closings and Delays

Dining services will continue to be open for meals during closed days.

If a snowstorm happens before classes begin or offices open, the President, in close coordination with the director of facilities and grounds, will decide about closing or delaying the opening of the College. This decision is based on weather forecasts and the conditions of parking lots, paths, and roads on campus. If a decision is made to close or delay opening, this decision will be made by 6:30 a.m., and a message to that effect will be placed on the Hampshire College hotline at 413.559.5508; an important announcement will be posted on the Hampshire College Intranet, which will be emailed to all students, faculty, and staff; and a message will be posted on the Hampshire College website.

If a snowstorm happens during the day, the director of facilities and grounds will consult with the dean of faculty's, President’s, student affairs', and finance and administration offices about the impact of the early closing on the academic program. If a decision is made to close early, the human resources office will communicate this to divisions and schools; a message will be placed on the hotline at 413.559.5508; an important announcement will be posted on the Hampshire College Intranet, which will be emailed to all students, faculty, and staff; and a message will be posted on the Hampshire College website.
