Class Cancellation – Both Campuses

In most cases, Rider will remain open and fully operational during inclement weather and other emergency situations.  Under extreme circumstances, however, it may become necessary to cancel classes and other functions, close certain buildings or take other emergency actions.

If such circumstances should arise, a notice will be sent via the Rider Alert System, Rider’s mass electronic messaging system.  Students may sign up for Rider Alert.

Cancellations will also be announced online at and on the Rider University information hotline at 609-219-2000, option 1.
