Due to inclement weather, WSU Vancouver is delaying start time until 10:00 a.m. Friday, December 9. The 50th Ave. entrance is closed.

This information is being communicated on our website homepage and on area TV and radio stations.

If you have questions about our suspended operations procedure, please refer to: emergency closure and suspended operations procedure.

If plowing and/or de-icing is in progress when you arrive on campus, certain parking lots and pathways may be closed. In that case, please park in open, plowed parking lots—regardless of parking permit type—and use pathways that are plowed and de-iced.

It is your responsibility to decide if you can safely commute to WSU Vancouver in the event of inclement weather while WSU Vancouver remains open for operations.

Faculty members, if you cancel your class while WSU Vancouver remains open for operation, it is your responsibility to notify students of the cancellation.
