Snow Cancels January 17 On-Campus Activities & Work

Forecasted heavy snow led Penn State to cancel most on-campus activities and work on Monday, January 17, the university announced Sunday night.

On-campus work and other in-person activities at University Park are canceled from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, January 17. Students already had classes off in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Activities beginning at or after 5 p.m. can continue as scheduled, Penn State said.

Additionally, employees who work remotely or can work remotely are advised to work from home. Employees who are required to work on campus or can’t work remotely are directed to stay home, the university said.

Employees scheduled to report to campus before 5 p.m. and head home after that point should just clock in at 5 p.m. and work the rest of their shift. Additionally, anyone working on campus overnight is dismissed at 5 a.m.

More nitty-gritty details for Penn State employees, including eligibility for closure pay, are available in this news release.

Down the road in State College, the borough has declared a snow emergency due to Sunday night’s storm. As a result, vehicles parked on public roads “must be removed” — a measure State College’s Department of Public Works says it’ll strictly enforce to clear snow.

Additionally, Penn State declared a “Midnight Clear” to expedite snow removal. The policy bans parking lot use from midnight Sunday through 7 a.m. Monday and from midnight Monday through 7 a.m. Tuesday.
