General Information

First, students, faculty, and staff should sign up for WU Alert to receive text and voicemail messages with the status of any closings or delays. Also check their university e-mail or the university website for the most comprehensive information related to class and office schedules. Should you not have access to e-mail, the Web, or other information, call the campus alert line at 803/323-2222. Please do NOT call Campus Police for closing information, as this will tie up phone lines that may be needed for an emergency.

University Communications and Marketing staff also will notify, as quickly as possible, the following local media outlets regarding closings and delays.

Please Note: The following links will open in a new browser window or tab.

Notices also may be listed in the Rock Hill Herald, Charlotte Observer, and SC's The State newspapers, provided decisions to close or delay classes meet publication deadlines.

If a weather incident requires cancelling classes on a weekend, there is a separate policy for that event.

Members of the Winthrop community should use their discretion in judging the safety of traveling to the university during periods of inclement weather. Check the Hazardous Weather/Emergency Leave Policy for details to help faculty and staff determine how inclement weather affects the work schedule.
