Belmont University will be open today—Wednesday, January 20, 2016—but no classes or activities will be held prior to 9 a.m. All classes and events scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. or later are expected to proceed as scheduled, but we will continue to monitor weather and road conditions and update campus again if that schedule needs to change. Facilities Management Services will be working to clear ice from sidewalks and building entrances, but some areas may remain slippery. Please be cautious when walking through campus and stay on the walkways that have been cleared.
Commuter students and employees should be aware that all surface parking lots will closed today to allow crews to remove snow and ice so cars should be parked in garages. In addition to surface parking lots, closed areas include the top floors of the Curb and Thrailkill garages and Portland Avenue (between MPAC and the library). The 4th floor entrance for the Curb Garage from 15th Avenue will be open today. Because weather and road conditions can vary greatly within our region, students, faculty and staff are urged to use individual discretion when making the decision to travel to campus in snow or icy weather.
