How will WCU publicize class cancellations, delayed openings and/or University closings?
When adverse weather conditions affect the routine operation of the University, information regarding class cancellation, delayed openings, and/or University closings will be publicized via multifaceted communication media. View all communication resources.
The most up-to-date and specific information, including weather developments, event cancellations and postponements, or changes to the final exam schedule, can be obtained by viewing the WCU homepage. Please do not call Public Safety for class delays or cancellations as such calls will tie up phone lines needed for emergencies.
With the possibilities of snow and ice during these months, Facilities personnel from Grounds, Custodial and Plant Operations are prepared to clear the parking lots, roads and sidewalks, so that people and vehicles can move about campus safely and WCU activities can proceed as usual.
Please help us during an inclement weather event by:
WCU has contracted with e2campus to provide the service WCU ALERT, which sends you direct text messages of WCU announcements - class cancellations, delayed openings, university closings, on-campus emergencies, and the occasional test message. WCU ALERT provides the most effective way to communicate safety to all students, faculty and staff – wherever you are. WCU ALERT is completely free to sign up. Your phone carrier may charge for receiving text messages. WCU ALERT will not deliver any kind of advertising content, and phone numbers will not be shared with any third parties.

Generally, should adverse weather conditions make it inadvisable to operate the University, all University-related events or functions will also be cancelled. The WCU homepage will carry the most up-to-date and specific information regarding event cancellation or postponement notices. Persons attending events scheduled to occur at the University by non-University organizations should contact their event organizer for cancellation information.
