Winter Weather Update

March 13, 2017

Dear Harvard College Students,

The University, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), and the College have been preparing for the arrival of tomorrow’s substantial winter storm. While many of you are away enjoying the spring recess, we want to remind those of you who remain on campus that the University and FAS are closed, and encourage you to plan ahead for the storm’s arrival. With 12-18 inches of snow forecasted to fall in Cambridge, we recommend purchasing and storing water and food that you can consume in your rooms, and want to remind you that each House is equipped with a kitchen for your use.

While restaurants and markets in Harvard Square may remain open during the storm, their hours may be hard to predict. All students who received the College’s Spring Break Grants can use them at CVS, H-Mart, and Broadway Marketplace – all of which have groceries.

As needed, please see your tutors, faculty deans, or resident dean with any questions. You can check for updates on the weather emergency by visiting: or calling: 617-496-NEWS. Updates will also be communicated via MessageMe.

Kind Regards,

Dean Katie O’Dair
