Campus open today
UW-Madison is open for business and classes will be held Monday, Feb. 18, as scheduled.
Safety should be an important consideration in deciding to come to campus.
Students who feel it is unsafe to travel should contact their
professors, instructors or teaching assistants about making up missed
class time. Professors, instructors and teaching assistants are asked
to be flexible in dealing with student requests.
Employees are advised to use their own discretion regarding their
health and safety and not travel on unsafe roads. However, as an arm of
state government, employees are required to use accrued holiday,
vacation or compensation time to cover any absences. If you have a
question, call your supervisor. Supervisors are advised to be flexible
in their approval of employee-requested leave, or late arrival, as a
result of inclement weather conditions.
Should faculty or instructional staff make individual decisions to
cancel class meetings, every effort should be made to notify students
and department offices of these changes.
Physical Plant staff members spent Sunday clearing roads and walkways
and opening storm drains. Crews returned to campus after midnight to
clear parking lots and work on additional snow and ice clean up.
