Emergency closing announcements will be made on radio, television

If weather or other emergency conditions warrant the all-day closing or delayed opening of the University, announcements will be made between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. on the following radio and television stations: WBUR (90.9 FM), WRKO (680 AM), WBZ (1030 AM), WBZ-TV (Ch. 4), WCVB-TV (Ch. 5), WHDH-TV (Ch. 7). These are the only stations authorized to announce BU closings and delayed openings.

Calls should not be made to the University Police or radio or television stations. Calls may be made to 353-SNOW (353-7669) to hear a recorded message regarding the University's closing or delayed opening. Calls may also be made to the University switchboard (353-2000). WBUR will post emergency closing notices on its web site at

During the day, the decision to shorten the work schedule because of adverse weather conditions will normally be made by 3 p.m. On such occasions, the Office of Personnel will notify all vice presidents, deans, and directors so that they may pass the information on to their employees.

Employees in essential services must report as scheduled. Essential services include, but are not limited to, University Police, Physical Plant, Mail Services, University switchboard, and the Infirmary.

Generally, the Boston University Medical Center has a no-close policy and remains open during emergency closings. If the BU Medical Center is to be closed, or its schedule altered due to emergency conditions, a separate announcement will be broadcast on BU's media stations.
