Hurricane Irene Update on 8/27/11

The College of New Jersey is continuing to closely monitor the advance of Hurricane Irene.  Precautionary measures are being taken to provide for the safety and security of all individuals on campus.  Campus Police and operations are staffed to full complement and contingency plans for sheltering and distribution of food and water to students on campus have been developed.  The College’s Critical Incident Planning Group has set up an Emergency Operations Center, for on-site personnel, in order to monitor the situation and respond as needed.

At this time, the National Weather Service anticipates the most intense conditions and tropical storm-force winds from Hurricane Irene to impact the campus overnight, through Sunday morning.  Members of the TCNJ community who are residing on campus are advised to stay indoors during this time.  We will continue to communicate with individuals on campus through all available means, including on-site residence staff, Campus Police, email, and voice and text messaging.

If you have not done so already, please visit as soon as possible and follow the instructions to enroll in the College’s emergency notification system.   To listen to a periodic recorded updates, please call the TCNJ Hotline at 609-771-6000.  Updates will be posted on our homepage at

Please continue to pay close attention to emergency alerts. This may include information from the media, as well as college announcements. Thank you for your cooperation.
