If weather conditions dictate a change in the University’s schedule, you can find the latest information in the following ways:
- UMW website
- UMW Alerts (via text, email, and/or voice message)
- Information Hotline at 540-654-2424
- Social Media on Facebook and Twitter
Every effort will be made to post an inclement weather announcement by 6 a.m. on the day of closing or delayed opening. A decision about evening class changes will be made by 3 p.m. on the day in question. Students, faculty and staff are urged to check these communication outlets periodically for up-to-date information. When the weather conditions permit return to normal operations following a closure or delay, that information will be disseminated as stated above.
The Information Hotline can be accessed 24 hours a day by calling 540-654-2424. The Hotline, which is maintained by the Office of Media and Public Relations, provides callers with recorded information concerning weather-related campus closings, delays or cancellations of classes or events.
