Hurricane Irene Causes Changes to Weekend Schedule and Start of Classes

In anticipation of Hurricane Irene’s impact on the Philadelphia area, the University has cancelled all events and activities on Saturday and Sunday at all locations. This includes move-in plans. In addition, all classes at all locations will be canceled on Monday, August 29, and Tuesday, August 30.

Students who are on campus already are being encouraged to return to their homes by midday Saturday if it is possible and safe to do so. Otherwise, arrangements are being prepared for those who will be staying on campus.  Students remaining on campus may be relocated to temporary housing as needed.

The tentative plan, which is contingent primarily on having electrical service from PECO, is for returning students to move into the residence halls and other students to return to campus on Tuesday, August 30. Classes will commence on Wednesday, August 31 at all locations.

Please monitor the University’s home page ( during this time for updates.

La Salle will also share closing information with KYW 1060 news radio.

University offices will be closed on Monday, August 29, and reopen on Tuesday, August 30. Essential personnel will report as usual.
