CNU is operating under normal conditions.

Updated: 01/18/2017 6:24 AM


Weather predictions indicate significant snow in the area this Saturday. We have made some adjustments to the schedule to assist you in returning to campus safely.

The residence halls will open at 8 a.m. on Friday, January 6 (tomorrow). Check-in will continue through the weekend, however, road conditions will likely be difficult on Saturday and Sunday; it may be advisable to avoid Saturday and Sunday for your travel.

Regattas Dining Hall will open on Saturday with brunch from 10:30-1:30. Dinner that evening will be from 4:30-6:30.

The residence halls and David Student Union will be the only buildings open on Saturday. If you are bringing a car to campus, we ask that you park as close to the medians as possible and avoid leaving spaces between vehicles. This will make it easier and faster for us to clear snow from the parking lots.

Please monitor http://cnualert.info/ for continued updates. We encourage you to monitor the weather in your area, along your route, and in Newport News and use this information to guide your return to campus.

Based on the current forecast, we expect classes to begin as planned on Monday, January 9th.

Be smart everyone, and travel safely


Christopher Newport University's Emergency Notifications System:

There are two primary electronic communication methods.

In the event of a real-time emergency (tornado, shooter, etc...) where students, faculty and staff need to take immediate action, a text message will be sent via this alert system. Other system components such as, email, calls to landline and cell phones, social media, and internal computer overrides may also be used. This type of communication will go to all individuals registered in the cnualert system.

In all other cases where there is not an emergency or immediate threat, information will be sent by email to Christopher Newport University students, faculty and staff via the cnu.edu email system. This notification is intended only for members of the Christopher Newport University community who attend classes or work on campus so that they may make plans regarding their daily activities.
