When inclement weather, including dangerous temperatures, snow, ice, wind or rain occur, how do you know if UW-L classes and events are being held? Check the UW-L Web site and listen to local media broadcasts.
UW-L’s inclement weather plan is invoked in the most serious times when conditions make travel to and from campus dangerously imprudent or other events cause serious safety concerns. When inclement weather or other events, such as electrical failure or chemical spills occur, closure is determined prior to 5:45 a.m. for day classes and 1:45 p.m. for evening classes and events.
Based on changing conditions, the plan can be implemented at any time. Closure means all university classes and events are cancelled. It is state policy to keep state offices open even when severe weather exists. When the governor closes state government offices, typically this does not include the UW System or UW-L.
