The University is closely monitoring the progress of Hurricane Sandy as it moves up the East Coast. It appears the storm will begin affecting our area with rain on Sunday but then accelerate. We are closely monitoring the National Weather Service (NWS) and will update the university community as needed.
Members of the SHU community are urged to monitor weather forecasts and the University’s information sources. If severe storm conditions are expected in the SHU campus area, emergency information and instructions will be disseminated via PirateAlert and the SHU website (http://www.shu.edu and http://law.shu.edu).
Suspension of SHU activities or closure of the University would be announced via PirateAlert, the University’s web sites and social media accounts, WSOU, and News 12 New Jersey. An informational message would also be placed on the University phone system (South Orange Campus 973-761-9000 and Law School at 973-642-8725).
We are working with Gourmet Dining Services to make sure students and essential employees are fed during the storm. We will communicate directly with resident students about the distribution of food, if needed.
Resident students need to stay indoors when the storm hits our region. Residence Hall staff will keep their students informed.
Employees who work in basement areas should lift all moveable files and materials off the floor and unplug all electrical devices before leaving the campus Friday afternoon.
Cars that are on campus for the weekend should be moved on Sunday to the parking deck.
Members of the community should log in to PirateNet to make sure that their Pirate Alert settings are up to date and accurate.
We will continue to update the community as necessary.
