Emergency Weather Closing Procedures
Closings & Delays
Using information regarding conditions of local roads, campus walkways and grounds, the Vice President for Finance & Administration and the Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs consult on the possibility of a modified University schedule that may affect classes and other university activities and functions. The modified schedule may include delayed opening, early closing, or full closing of the University.
The Vice President of Finance & Administration informs the police of the decision, and they in turn, notify the various radio and television stations and the University shuttle bus company. The decision is posted on WCSU’s web site. Individuals may also call 203-837-9377 for a recorded announcement of the decision to close or delay.
The opening of offices and buildings will coincide with the beginning of classes. For example, if classes are delayed until 10 a.m., the offices and buildings will also open at 10 a.m., at which time all employees are expected to report for work. If day classes are cancelled, the administrative offices will be closed for that day also. Designated police and maintenance personnel are required to report for work as usual.
On the Midtown Campus there is no overnight parking (11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.) in any of the surface lots ( Faculty/Staff Lot off Fifth Avenue, White Hall Lot, University Hall Lot, and Newbury Lot). There is no overnight parking on the roof level of either Midtown garage. On the Westside Campus there is no parking on University Boulevard or on the roof of the Westside garage.
