Adverse Weather Alert – UNC Classes canceled at 5 p.m.

Evening classes are canceled starting at 5 p.m. on Jan. 28, 2014. Offices are not affected. (Condition 2)

Snow is predicted to begin intermittently in the area around 4 p.m. and become steady beginning in the early evening through around 5 a.m. Campus officials will monitor the situation during the night and will send an updated advisory about morning operations as soon as that determination is made.

Employees (SPA and EPA non-faculty) are reminded of the University’s Adverse Weather Policy. Emergency employees should report for work. Other employees are responsible for their regular duties, making up any missed work time, and making their own decisions about work based on personal safety.

UNC uses three main adverse weather operating conditions:  Condition 1 (open), Condition 2 (classes canceled; offices open) or Condition 3 (classes canceled; offices closed). Reports of state government closings do not apply to the University. The University generally announces adverse weather news on, the campus information sources listed below, and through the news media. Unless a change is announced, the University always operates under Condition 1 – regular schedule.
