Impending snowstorm leads to cancelations


Lehigh will open at noon on Feb. 9 due to an impending winter storm.

Students and faculty were notified by the LU-ALERT system and the Provost’s Office. The alerts said only essential staff should report at the regular time.

Parking Services announced snow regulations will be in effect by 10 p.m. Wednesday. This means all vehicles must be removed from faculty/staff parking lots on Asa Packer Campus or they could be towed.

The Lehigh bus service is experiencing delays too, according to its Twitter account. The real-time bus schedule can be viewed here.

The alert comes after a winter storm warning has been issued for the Bethlehem area, with an expected accumulation of six to 10 inches of snow.

Here are the list of events that have been canceled or postponed:
