University prepares for winter weather situations

Should weather conditions create potentially hazardous travel conditions, Washington University will evaluate the situation and take into consideration the safety of the University’s faculty, staff and students as well as the services that must be provided despite the inclement weather.

In the unlikely event that the University alters the normal work and/or class schedule, an announcement will be posted on the University’s home page (, and a number of media outlets also will air an announcement.

Separate announcements will be made regarding the Danforth Campus (which includes all campuses other than the Medical School Campus), the Medical School Campus and evening school classes. These announcements will apply only to Washington University students, faculty and staff.

The media outlets that would air such an announcement are KTVI-TV Channel 2, KMOV-TV Channel 4, KSDK-TV Channel 5, WSIE-FM (88.7) and KMOX-AM (1120).
