Pittsburgh remains covered by up to 24 inches of snow — a situation that has shut down roads, businesses, and most mass transit services, including all but one Port Authority bus route. Both incoming and outgoing flights at both Pittsburgh International and Allegheny County airports have been grounded until further notice.

On Carnegie Mellon’s campus, normal operations have also been affected. Housing and Dining Services announced that dining will be “operating in a limited capacity.” This meant a delayed start time for many of the on-campus dining options including Skibo Cafe and the Underground.

Many of the campus’s facilities have also closed due to the weather. The bookstore, computer store, and art store remain closed for the full day Saturday. Hunt Library and the Engineering and Science Library are also closed.

Crews from Facilities Management Services (FMS) continue to clear roadways, pedestrian walkways, and surface parking lots. Three trees near Hamburg Hall, near the FMS Building, and at the corner of Devon Road and Forbes Avenue have also fallen due to snowfall. Crews are reported to be working to clear the areas affected.

However, despite the snow, students have continued to roam the campus, organizing snowball fights, pancake breakfasts, and sledding.

Campus alerts remind students to “be careful and take extra precautions this weekend as roadways and walkways can be treacherous.”
