COLUMBIA — MU will be closed Tuesday because of a large snowstorm forecast to enter the area Monday evening, according to the MU News Bureau.
No in-person classes, exams or events will be held, but online classes and hybrid classes that don't require classroom presence will continue as normal.
The storm is expected to dump 6 to 8 inches of snow on Columbia overnight.
Such a storm would be the second major snowfall in less than a week. Another winter storm dropped 10.2 inches on the area Thursday, according to a measurement taken at Columbia Regional Airport. This prompted MU to cancel classes Thursday afternoon and Friday.
MU officials will assess conditions Tuesday and determine whether to cancel classes Wednesday, spokesman Christian Basi said.
University officials also cited concerns from local and state authorities. The Missouri Department of Transportation has issued a "no travel" advisory for the state.
"The faculty and registrar will be discussing how to make up classes when they resume," Basi said.
MU Health Care and its hospitals will remain open, as will the MU Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, according to the News Bureau release. Here is a list of MU Health Care facilities that will not be open Tuesday.
