The University of Maryland at College Park will shut down Friday through Sunday, school officials said, in anticipation of a snowstorm expected to wallop the Washington region this weekend.
The snowstorm is expected to arrive as some students are moving into dormitories for the spring term. Officials said students will still be able to move in on Friday, if needed, but they advised them not to move in on Saturday.
The U-Md. men’s basketball team plays Saturday, but they are away at Michigan State in East Lansing, Mich. The women’s basketball team is scheduled to host Michigan State on Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Xfinity Center. University spokeswoman Crystal Brown said that as of Wednesday evening the plan is for the game to be held as scheduled.
