St. John's University New York Campuses Closed

Out of concern for the safety of our students, faculty, and administration and in consideration of the widespread regional snow removal efforts which are expected, all St. John's University's New York campuses will be closed Monday, January 26, and Tuesday, January 27, 2015, and all classes will be canceled.

This closing applies to St. John's Queens, Staten Island, Manhattan, and Oakdale campuses.
