UD weather-related closings

When severe weather strikes the Delaware Valley, UD employees and students have several options to find out if there are late openings, early closings or cancellations at the University.

Information on closings or late opening will be available from:

Members of the campus community are asked to not call the Department of Public Safety so that telephone lines there can remain open for emergency calls.

The University Policy and Procedures Manual has a section dealing with personal safety considerations for faculty and students. Please note the policy, part of which is quoted here:

Faculty and students are not expected to take unnecessary risks to meet their teaching and learning obligations due to inclement weather. When classes have not been canceled, it is a matter of personal judgment whether traveling to campus is hazardous. Faculty should notify their departmental offices when weather precludes them from meeting their teaching obligations; similarly, students should notify their professors when inclement weather precludes them from class attendance. In such cases, students should be allowed to make up missed class time and, whenever possible, canceled classes should be rescheduled.
