Because of the large resident student population and the quarter calendar, every effort is made to keep the Institute open. In the case of severe weather conditions, the safety of the faculty, staff and students will be the major factor considered.
Emergency Closing Procedure
When conditions warrant the cancellation of classes, an effective time of cancellation will be determined. This situation will affect classes only, not work schedules. An emergency closing of the Institute, on the other hand, means that only designated personnel will be asked to remain or to report to work.
When conditions develop over night an effort will be made to have a closing announcement on the air by 6:00 a.m. for the cancellation of classes.
An emergency closing message will be recorded on:
- 475-7075 V
- 475-7076 TTY
- 475-2411 RIT's Main Number
TV channels 8, 9, 10, 13 and 31 will carry closed captioned messages during these announcements.
Radio – Cancellations/closing will also be announced on the following radio stations: WBBF, WCMF, WDKX, WHAM, WITR, WLCL, WXXI, WVOR, WBEE, WRMM, WNVE, WPXY.
