For the Harold C. Smith Learning Commons to remain open regular hours during inclement weather situations the following must be in place:

  • Classes are scheduled to be in session
  • Students are resident in campus housing

During cancelled classes and delayed openings, the Learning Commons will be open regular hours.

If inclement weather occurs on a weekend, and the college does not announce a delay or closing, the Learning Commons will be open regular hours, but librarians will not teach classes for any campus.

For inclement weather closings occurring when classes are not in session, such as during college breaks, holidays, etc., the Learning Commons will be open regularly scheduled hours.

Note: some services may be limited during these weather situations, but the building will be open regular hours. Exceptions include situations that Learning Commons or College administration decides it is unsafe to be open due to safety issues.

For information about College closings, please call the Springfield College closing line at 413-748-5999 or the Springfield College Weather Notification page at https://springfield.edu/department-of-public-safety/emergency-notification.
