Johns Hopkins University closed Tuesday due to winter weather

All classes canceled, exams postponed; shuttle schedules modified

Johns Hopkins University is closed Tuesday and classes have been canceled due to the arrival of a winter storm this morning that delivered the region's second appreciable snowfall in three days.

Daytime exams were postponed, university officials said this morning, adding later that all Johns Hopkins Tuesday evening classes are canceled at all locations.

In addition:

  • At the Homewood campus, the rec center will close at 8 p.m.
  • Also at Homewood, the Eisenhower Library is open with limited service.
  • All Peabody Prep locations are closed Tuesday afternoon and evening. Classes and lessons are canceled.
  • At Peabody, the Yale Gordon competition and the Wind Ensemble dress rehearsal will go ahead as scheduled.

The weather forced modifications to shuttle schedules as well:

After 8:45 p.m., the regular schedule will be in effect.
  • The Keswick-Homewood-Eastern-JHMI shuttle is operating on a modified schedule (more information).
