Closings & Delay Information: Remember to Dial 717-901-5199 Before You Drive!
Students, faculty and staff should dial 717.901.5199 to access the University’s operating schedule. Should Harrisburg University open late, close early, or cancel classes for the day due to inclement weather or other emergency, a message will be left on the University’s voicemail at that number. Additionally, the University will post any changes to its operating schedule on the main page of the website.
The University does not follow the lead of any other organization with regard to weather cancellations and/or delays, and it will make every effort to remain open and available to students. If, the University remains open during or following a weather-related event or other emergency, it is up to each student and employee to make a reasonable decision about whether to travel. Safety and common sense should guide decisions. Students are expected to notify their faculty, and employees are expected to report to their supervisors. HU will not make personal calls to students or employees. The University will follow all City of Harrisburg and/or Commonwealth mandated emergency procedures in the event of a weather-related emergency, too.
Emergency Notification System
Students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to sign up for emergency campus alerts via email or text message by logging into MyHU and accessing the e2Campus signup form. Students will find the form under the Student Services tab. Staff and faculty will find it under the Intranet tab. Harrisburg University’s Emergency Notification Service (ENS) is used to communicate with subscribers through voice, text, and email messages, as deemed appropriate in the event of an emergency. Each subscriber can designate up to three contact numbers and specify text, email and/or voice messages. The Emergency Notification Service is designed for use with portable devices and is only one aspect of a layered approach to notifying the University community of emergencies.
