(WWJ) At least three metro Detroit universities—Wayne State, Oakland and Eastern Michigan--have cancelled in-person classes due to the snow.

In a release, Oakland University said both the main campus in Rochester and the Anton Frankel Center in Macomb will be closed Tuesday.

All in-person classes scheduled for the day will meet virtually instead.

“Students should log-in to Moodle and monitor their university email accounts for additional information. All virtual classes planned for Tuesday will take place as scheduled,” a release read.

The University asked essential workers to report to campus based on emergency closure guidelines. Any faculty or staff who can telework should stay at home, according the University.

Eastern Michigan University is calling off both virtual and in-person classes.

“Owing to the need for people to remain at home, the cancellation includes all scheduled classes, meetings, library operations, and other activities, whether virtual or in-person. Faculty and staff who are teleworking due to the pandemic are not expected to work Tuesday,” EMU said in a release.

Residence halls, apartments and dining halls will be open.

Wayne State University will be closed for in-person classes. Online classes will continue as scheduled.
