The university activated the emergency response team in preparation for possible inclement weather early this week, according to a broadcast email sent by Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Christopher Augostini Friday afternoon.
The community will be updated through the HOYAlert emergency notification system about the progress of Hurricane Sandy and any delays or closings.
According to the email, emergency generators are in working order; however, they do not guarantee power to all buildings. Sellinger Lounge will be open in case of a power outage.
Augostini urged all students should remain in a designated safe space and cooperate with emergency personnel.
