Queens College is open. Classes are in session. The Queens College shuttle bus is operating on a full schedule, but there may be delays due to the condition of the roads.

The combination of snow and the wind chill factor will cause slippery conditions in and around the campus. To ensure your safety, our staff is diligently working to address this issue at all building entrances and on roadways, walkways, and stairs. Please exercise caution while traveling to and from the college and when walking and driving on campus.
