Call 585-INFO for Foul Weather Information

For information about weather-related or other closings or delays, call the Smith Information Line at 413-585-INFO (585-4636). An updated announcement will be available beginning approximately at 6:30 a.m. on the affected workday.

Delays or closings may also be announced via:

  • An email to the Smith community
  • An announcement on the college website
  • WFCR 88.5 FM
  • WWLP-TV Channel 22
  • WGGB-TV Channel 40

Classes will not be held if the college does not open for a full day. However, if the college instead opts for a delayed opening, or an early closing announced during the affected weekday, classes are not cancelled. Faculty members who wish to cancel their classes due to a delayed opening or early closing are asked to notify their students via email or Moodle.

Smith College Campus School

The Campus School at Smith College has its own procedures for closing and follows Northampton Public School snow day calls. Notification of a Campus School closing is submitted only to the television stations by the Campus School principal and is not put on the Smith Information Line.

Northampton Parking Ban Notifications

Smith students, as well as faculty and staff who are Northampton residents, can receive Northampton emergency notifications, including winter parking bans on City streets, via cell phone by signing up at the city’s website. Personal information will not be shared. Please note that when the blue lights on the traffic signals in downtown Northampton are flashing, a winter parking ban is in effect and there is no overnight on-street parking in Northampton.
