Emergency / Weather Alert

The opening of Western Connecticut State University will be delayed until 10:00 AM on Wednesday, March 4, 2015. Students and faculty are expected to report to classes that are scheduled to be in progress at the delayed opening time. For example, when the university opens at 10 a.m., then a 9:30 a.m. class would have a delayed starting time of 10 a.m. and would end at the prior designated time.

The opening of most offices and buildings will coincide with the beginning of classes at 10:00 AM, however, the Campus and Student centers will open at 8 a.m. and dining services will open at 9 a.m.
