Weather Closing Information for Students

How Campus Closures are Decided

  • Closing decisions are made by the Provost's office with input from Public Safety and Facilities Operations on all campuses
  • The closing decision is never made lightly, and must balance academic and safety needs
  • Individual students who are not comfortable driving in the existing weather conditions may exercise their discretion not to do so

How We Communicate about Closures

  • Campus closures, class delays, and emergencies are decided by and communicated by the University. The University will send announcements regarding campus closures, delays, and emergencies via email to all with a uconn.edu email account. In addition, the University will send a text to those who have registered for the notification service at alert.uconn.edu and to the media.
  • A general announcement banner may appear on the Law School website pages

Other Details

  • Normally cars may not be left on campus overnight; any car left on campus may be towed to allow for plowing
