Northwestern University will be closed again Tuesday because of the severe weather conditions.

All classes will be canceled. Offices, libraries and recreation centers will be closed on both the Evanston and Chicago campuses.

University officials say the extreme cold weather is causing continuing travel disruptions with students, faculty and staff unable to return to campus. In addition, travel in the Chicago area is expected to be dangerous and public transportation severely affected.

University police, facilities management, residence hall dining staff and other essential personnel should report to work. Supervisors will contact those staff members who are needed to work for emergency purposes.

On the Evanston campus, Sargent Hall and Allison Hall will serve as warming centers for students who may need that emergency assistance. Other dining facilities will also be open. Norris Center will be closed.

Students should contact their professors regarding how and when classes that will be canceled on Monday and Tuesday will be made up.

On the Evanston campus, the following shuttle buses are out of service today and Tuesday — Intercampus, Ryan Field, Frostbite Express, and Frostbite Sheridan. SafeRide will also be out of service. The Evanston Loop and Campus Loop will be in service as scheduled.

The university expects to be open and hold classes on Wednesday, Jan. 8.
