UPDATED THURSDAY, FEB.3 TO REFLECT UPDATED HOURS TO ARNOLD DINING HALL. SMU AWARE’S WEBSITE NOW HAS A PAGE WITH LIVE UPDATES TO FACILITY HOURS.

All classes on Thursday and Friday will be moved online due to “the inclement weather and icy roadways” per a campus-wide announcement early Thursday morning. Classes are not canceled.

“Employees should remain at home, unless instructed to provide essential campus operations or safety services,” the announcement reads. “Campus emergency workers have been preparing for this storm with supplies and plans to keep on campus residents safe, warm, and nourished.”

All campus activities are canceled, and multiple campus facilities and services are either closed or working on adjusted hours.

The move to online classes comes after SMU announced Wednesday afternoon that classes that evening would be moved online, but stopped short of moving Thursday and Friday classes online. SMU instead said that further announcements on Thursday and Friday operations would come by 6 a.m. that morning.
