In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Montclair State University will be closed on Tuesday, October 30, and Wednesday, October 31. Day and evening classes have been canceled for both dates. All performances, conferences, lectures, athletic events and other activities that had been scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday are also canceled.
This decision to remain closed on Wednesday is based upon a number of factors, including the current absence of mass transit service and the limited road accessibility in the area, both of which make it extremely difficult for many of our students, faculty and staff to travel to and from the campus.
We strongly advise students to remain where you are. If you are in residence, stay here. If you are safe at home, stay there. Commuter students should not come to campus.
Dining services will be available to resident students in Sam’s Place and Freeman Dining Hall on a regular schedule.
Campus shuttle service will end at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday evening and will remain suspended until further notice.
We were fortunate that much of the campus was relatively undamaged by the storm. However, a fallen tree is blocking access along Clove Road and has impacted electrical service in that area. Students currently being housed in Sinatra Hall, the Villages, and Hawks Crossing will be temporarily relocated to other University residence halls until power is restored to the Clove Road facilities.
All essential service personnel should report to the campus as directed by supervisors.
A notice concerning classes and events on Thursday, November 1, will be posted here and on the University website by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday.
