Citing the "big winter storm predicted to hit the East Coast on Saturday," Ithaca College officials have announced the campus will reopen residence halls early for the spring semester.

"While this storm is not anticipated to produce much snow in Ithaca, we have many students and families who live in areas that might receive a significant amount of snow and/or experience blizzard like conditions," according to an announcement from Barth Myers of IC's Residential Life office. "As a result we are inviting students who will be impacted by this winter storm to return early to campus."

Students who were on campus in the fall and are returning early can register their plans with the Winter Break Registration Form. Students who weren't on campus on fall but need to arrive early can submit an Early Arrival Request Form. Students returning to the same room from the fall can return directly, but students moving into a new room should go to their area office to check in and obtain keys.

College officials say the Terrace Dining Hall will open early, as well, with limited meal service beginning Friday at noon.

While Cornell University's spring semester doesn't begin until next Wednesday, residence halls are already open as of today, and meal plans begin on Thursday evening.
