Stony Brook University Classes Canceled Monday

Concern for commuters as snow removal efforts continue.

Classes at Stony Brook University are cancelled on Monday.

According to a notice on the school's website, the decision came, "Due to the ongoing regional snow removal efforts and the impacts to mass transit and roadways servicing our campuses."

According to the National Weather Service, over 27 inches of snow fell in Stony Brook on Friday into Saturday, with close to 30 inches falling in nearby East Setauket.

Town highway crews have been hamstrung by abandoned cars around town as they have struggled to clear roads. After seeing what he described as a "complete and systematic breakdown in the ability of the Town Highway Department to respond to this crisis," Brookhaven's Town Councilman representing the area where SBU is located, Steve Fiore-Rosenfeld, called for an emergency board meeting on Sunday to hash out a plan to clear roads as soon as possible. 

The closing applies to Stony Brook's main campus, as well as their locations in Southampton and Manhattan. It includes the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, School of Health Technology & Management, School of Social Welfare, and the Dental School.

Stony Brook University Hospital has remained open throughout the storm, and will remain open.

For students looking for a bite to eat on campus, the SAC food court will remain open until 6 p.m. on Sunday, and Wendy's will be open until 1 a.m.

The health science library will close at 12:30 a.m., and the music library, as well as the math, physics and astronomy library are closing at 6 p.m.
