Closing of the University

Inclement weather or other events beyond the control of the University that might cause risk or danger to students, faculty, and staff may occasionally result in changes to normal University operations, including cancellation of classes or events; the calendar schedule may be adjusted. Recorded announcements of weather-related or other closings of the university can be heard by calling the SAM-INFO message system at (205) 726-4636. In addition, the Office of Communication notifies local radio and television stations of campus closings. In case of emergency, the RAVE alert system is activated.
