Inclement Weather Information

UO Main Campus

Because it is a residential campus with 24/7 operations, the UO main campus seldom closes due to weather. We encourage you to sign up for UO emergency alerts, which include weather closure information or call the university inclement weather phone line at 541-346-9000.

Continuing and Professional Education

General procedures are listed below for primary Continuing and Professional Education locations. In the event of a cancellation, the Continuing and Professional Education Registration staff will attempt to notify all registrants via e-mail (or by phone for those without email contact information). If you are unable to attend a workshop or class due to weather, please inform the registration office at 800-824-2714, 541-346-4231, or cpe@uoregon.edu.
