With the mostly cold Spring semester underway, it is important that students, faculty and staff of Kean University are informed and aware of policies when it comes to university closings, cancellations and delays.
There are a few things that could cause a change to the university's hours of operations. In some cases the university will close for the entire day due to the weather. Other times the university will announce that classes and university functions and events will close after a certain time, typically correlated to the weather's progression throughout a given day.
To be aware of these notifications, it is crucial that all students, staff and faculty are signed up for the CampusAlert™system through their Kean email and phone number. It would be a great inconvenience for members of the Kean community to commute in harsh weather conditions.
Using one's "@kean.edu" student email address as one's username, CampusAlert™ is a system that sends notifications to students to let them know important information about the functioning of Kean University. It is used to inform students and staff about closings, delays and any changes on campus that students should be aware of.
It is important that students register for these alerts so they know when the campus is closing, or if they need to stay away from an area for any reason. Students can opt for automated phone calls and emails as well as text messages. More than one method of contact can be selected as preferred to get information in a timely fashion.
To register for CampusAlert™or update one's alert settings, visit the CampusAlert™ website. Once there, follow the instructions on the right hand side.
What is most important to the university is the safety and overall well being of Kean's community members. Students should be sure to check the Kean website for a short list of tips on driving and commuting in the harsh weather.
