Call 585-INFO for foul weather information.

For information about weather-related or other closings or delays, call the Smith Information Line at 413-585-INFO (585-4636). An updated announcement will be available beginning approximately at 6:30 a.m. on the affected workday.

Delays or closings may also be announced via:

  • The Smith College Alerts blog
  • An email to the Smith community
  • An announcement on the college website
  • WFCR 88.5 FM
  • WWLP-TV Channel 22
  • WGGB-TV Channel 40

Classes will not be held if the college does not open for a full day. However, if the college instead opts for a delayed opening, or an early closing announced during the affected weekday, classes are not cancelled. Faculty members who wish to cancel their classes due to a delayed opening or early closing are asked to notify their students via email or Moodle.

The Smith College Campus School

The Campus School at Smith College has its own procedures for closing and follows Northampton Public School snow day calls. Notification of a Campus School closing is submitted only to the television stations by the Campus School principal and is not put on the Smith Information Line.

Receive Northampton Parking Ban Notifications via Cell Phone

Smith students, as well as faculty and staff who are Northampton residents, can receive Northampton emergency notifications, including winter parking bans on City streets, via cell phone by signing up for Blackboard Connect CTY at the city’s Web site. Personal information will not be shared. Please note also that when the blue lights on the traffic signals in downtown Northampton are flashing, a winter parking ban is in effect and there is no overnight on-street parking in Northampton.

In Case of Emergency

In case of all emergencies, contact the Campus Police dispatch center, (413) 585-2490. If the phone line is not operational, call (413) 538-2304.
