Inclement Weather

Snow is forecasted this week: Brush up on the inclement weather policy

It is rare that WSU Vancouver modifies operations for ANY weather conditions. Any closure or late opening announcements will be posted to major news and media outlets AND listed on the WSU Vancouver website home page, the VanCoug Alerts webpage and on social media.

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. Review FAQ: Inclement Weather for clarification on using leave during crummy weather.

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

The WSU Vancouver weather policy, along with instructional information and a list of closure notification websites can be found online.
