University Weather Information

URI Alerts

Current alert status

URI Alerts provides one online location for all notices, information and alerts related to inclement weather or other events that may affect operations at any URI campus.

The guiding principles for weather-related campus maintenance and class cancellation/delays are:

  • The safety of the campus community is of paramount importance; as such, during or following inclement weather, the university will provide sufficient maintenance to ensure safe access to campus roads, parking lots, walkways, and buildings.
  • Learning and discovery are the core missions of the university; as such, the expectation is that classes will be held unless the University is unable to ensure safe access to campus buildings by community members.
  • Therefore, the standard is always that classes are held as scheduled, unless there is a university announcement of cancellation or delay.
