Through the Information Hotline, the Media and Public Relations office provides recorded information about weather-related and other emergency closings or delayed-opening information. The hotline can be accessed by calling (540) 654-2424. The hotline message is updated by 6 a.m. on days when University officials have made a decision to close the University or to delay its opening. If a decision is made during the evening hours, the hotline will be updated as soon as the information is available.
