By Jacob Seitz, Staff Writer

The college delayed the start of classes until 10 a.m. Tuesday due to inclement weather moving through the Northeast. 

All classes scheduled before 10 a.m. will be canceled and made up at a later date, according to the college’s official delayed opening policy. The policy also states that all non-essential employees whose scheduled workday begins at 8 a.m. are expected to arrive at 10 a.m.

“Everyone is encouraged to make decisions based on the conditions in the area,” a community email stated. “If you are a staff/faculty member, please contact the appropriate supervisor if you are not able to make it to campus. If you are a student, please contact your faculty members directly if you are not able to attend class.”

The college’s dining facilities and 172 Tremont will operate on a normal schedule. Additionally, the fitness center and Iwasaki Library will open at 10 a.m.

Boston Public Schools and Simmons College are closed tomorrow as a result of the weather.
