Food and Groceries: As students continue to move from their North Campus residence halls to South Campus apartments, dining facilities will shift to meet demand. As all West Campus residence halls (BBB, Sadler and Lawrinson) are now closed, Sadler Dining Center is also closed. Shaw Dining Center and the Goldstein Food Court on South Campus remain open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day. For the most up-to-date information, please visit the Food Services website. Both the South Campus Express and West Campus Express convenience stores remain open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Students can also place an online grocery order from the Bookstore’s market and receive free on-campus delivery.

Library Operations: As of Tuesday, March 17, Syracuse University Libraries buildings are closed to all patrons until further notice. The Libraries’ staff will remain available to support students, faculty and staff as they transition to online learning and teaching. Libraries’ staff have access to the library buildings for essential services but are primarily working remotely. Learn more about online resources, services and support at SU News.

Instruction Moved Online: Beginning at the end of the academic day on March 13 Syracuse University transitioned from residential to online instruction and/or other alternative (non-residential) modalities at all of its U.S.-based locations through the end of the semester. This includes centers in New York City, Los Angeles and Washington, DC. All Syracuse Abroad Centers have been suspended and courses moved to online instruction.


All NCAA and intramural athletics have been suspended until further notice. For more information, follow Cuse.com.

Event Cancellations and Postponements

As we all work to communicate coronavirus response information, many events posted to the University Calendar will need to be postponed or cancelled entirely. Please adhere to the following guidelines when dealing with a postponed or cancelled event:

  • Please add "POSTPONED:" or "CANCELLED:" (all caps followed by a colon) to the existing event title
  • Indicate explicitly in the description that the event has been postponed or cancelled—this can be added to the existing text. See example
  • Do not delete the event. Users will be browsing the calendar for cancellation information.
