Inclement weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances may necessitate a delay in the start of classes, changing to online instruction and/or work, or closing certain programs or events at the University. Whether to remain open, go on a snow schedule, change to online instruction/work, or close the University is often a difficult decision that is made after thorough consideration regarding the safety of faculty, staff, and students, as well as clinical and patient care services. It is not possible for University officials to know the weather and road conditions throughout the St. Louis region, so students, faculty, staff, and contracted employees are urged to use their best judgement in determining whether travel to the University is prudent.
