Delay & Closing Information

In the event of snow, severe storms or other emergencies, official word of Penn State New Kensington closing or delaying classes can be found via:

  • personal cell phones (via PSUAlert)

  • local news outlets
  • phone on a pre-recorded message: students, (724) 334-6006; and faculty/staff, (724) 334-6005.

The decision to cancel or delay classes will be made as early as possible, usually by 6 a.m. for daytime classes and 4 p.m. for evening classes. Once a two-hour delay is announced, classes will follow the campus delay schedule, start at 10:00 a.m. and will last 45 minutes each.
