3 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17
Due to the impending winter storm, Binghamton University will open residence halls to students by 8 a.m. Saturday morning and throughout the weekend, rather than waiting until the published time of 2 p.m. Sunday. Students must notify Residential Life at reslife.binghamton.edu/early if they intend to check into their rooms early. Students who check in early can expect limited dining services.
The main storm is expected to arrive late Saturday afternoon and continue into Sunday, bringing more than a foot of snow to the Binghamton area. Students are urged to take this into consideration when determining when to travel to campus and are reminded that classes do not begin until Tuesday.
Escape buses are delayed until Monday, Jan. 21.
Students who live off campus are urged to refrain from parking on city streets to assist with snow removal operations. Alternate side parking rules remain in effect and will be enforced.
Vehicles parked illegally and blocking plow routes will be towed.
OCCT plans to start service Sunday morning if roads are passable. There is no OCCT Saturday service. Students should monitor https://www.occtransport.org/serviceupdates/ for the OCCT schedule.

We take campus safety seriously.
