UW-Whitewater Emergency Information

Inclement Weather

Basic Policy

In the event of inclement weather conditions, all on-campus operations of UW-Whitewater will be carried on to the extent practical. Therefore, it should be assumed that scheduled activities will continue unless instructions from the Chancellor's Office direct to the contrary. Individuals who must travel to or from campus should use their judgment as to whether or not such travel is wise. 

General Notification Procedures

When severe inclement weather requires cancellation of scheduled events or closure of campus facilities, the Chancellor's Office will notify students and employees through a press release concerning the inclement weather action. The release will be disseminated by the Office of University Marketing and Media Relations to the Campus Radio Station (FM 91.7 MHz), Channel 19 TV Station, the UWW Website, broadcast e-mail and a designated list of campus officers.
