The National Weather Service is currently monitoring winter weather activity for the Washington metropolitan area beginning this morning and throughout the weekend. While there is light precipitation and a chance for compromised transit conditions, Howard University is currently under normal operating status and will open on its regular schedule today, Feb. 1, 2023.

Community members are reminded to be safe and to exercise caution around campus and surrounding areas. Please be mindful of slippery conditions on roadways and walkways. Watch out for falling debris and avoid trees with loose branches and unsecured structures and equipment. 

We will continue to monitor local forecasts and provide necessary updates on any operational or schedule changes. Should conditions change and require early closure, researchers should complete or properly save any experiments planned for work. Employees should save any unsaved documentation and are asked to power down or unplug any sensitive or critical devices that a surge in power may impact. 

For more information or to submit a campus safety concern, please contact the Department of Public Safety (DPS) at 202-806-1100. Please remain safe.
