What To Know
In snowy or icy weather, you can find out instantly whether
Hopkins is open or closed by calling the university's weather
emergency telephone line: (410)516-7781, or, from areas where
Baltimore is a long-distance call, 1(800)548-9004. APL has a
separate phone line, at (410)792-6101.
The phone line offers several advantages over radio and TV reports.
As soon as the university decides what to do during a snowstorm, the weather emergency line message is recorded. That usually occurs by 6 a.m. after an overnight storm. Decisions on part-time evening classes are usually made by 1 p.m. During major storms, the line is updated frequently with new information on library hours, shuttle service, etc.
You won't have to wait for radio announcers to get through a long list of other institutions, and you will receive the most complete and accurate information available.
The information on the phone line is also available in cyberspace, on JHUniverse at:
