Due to “extremely cold temperatures” forecasted, the University of Minnesota has canceled classes for part of the day on Tuesday, lasting through Wednesday.

In an email sent to the University on Monday night, President Eric Kaler announced classes are cancelled starting noon on Tuesday through Wednesday.  The campus will remain open, with buses running normally on Tuesday and with reduced service on Wednesday.

“This decision to cancel classes but keep the University open was made by University leaders after careful consideration of many factors,” the email read.
