Weather Closing Information

Especially during winter storms, safety may require closing of FDU campuses for a day or portion of a day. Every effort will be made to have morning closing information available before 6 AM. The resources on this page will also be activated for other situations where one or both New Jersey campuses may have altered schedules: local power outages, emergencies, or even a visit from a dignitary or celebrity.
