The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning effective until Thursday, 8 a.m. About 15 inches of total snow accumulation is in the forecast, with the heaviest snowfall expected this afternoon and evening.
Consequently, Wagner College has cancelled all Wednesday classes and activities, and administrative offices will be closed all day.
Essential staff are expected to report for duty on Wednesday.
We will send an email update Wednesday before 9 p.m. with information about the Thursday schedule.
Public Safety staff will remain on duty throughout the storm. If you need them, call 718-390-3148. For emergencies, dial 911.
For information on our emergency text messaging system and how to sign up, visit our website.
Parking on the Cunard Loop is prohibited to facilitate snow removal. Please use the Lower Tiers parking lot instead.
Update (Wed., 9 a.m.): Due to hazardous road conditions, ferry shuttle service has been suspended for the remainder of the day. The last pickup at the St. George ferry terminal is at 9:10 a.m.
Our plan is to operate the ferry shuttle on Wednesday until drivers determine that it is unsafe to continue operating. Please note that if you go in to the city in the morning, you may return to find that the shuttle vans have suspended operations and the S66 bus is no longer going up Grymes Hill. We will inform you by email and text (for subscribers) if and when the ferry shuttle service is suspended, but we will probably be unable to provide you with any more advance warning than this message. Please make alternate plans in advance for returning to campus if you go in to the city using the ferry shuttle on Wednesday. Update (Wed., 7:45 a.m.): Ferry shuttle pick up and drop off has moved to Howard Avenue at the main campus entrance, starting with the 8:10 a.m. campus departure.
Since NYC public schools are closed on Wednesday due to snow, the college's Port Richmond shuttle service will not operate today.
