University Emergency Closing Policy

The University of Cincinnati is always officially open. During periods of severe inclement weather, public emergency, or other crisis, the president or a designated cabinet officer may announce, through the University of Cincinnati electronic mail system and through the local news media, that some or all of the university's offices and facilities are closed for part or all of a workday.

The following units never close under any circumstances: College of Medicine, University Police, Office of Residence Life/Housing units, utility plants, emergency maintenance operations, any research unit where the integrity of the research must be preserved, and service units that routinely operate on a seven day per week, twenty-four hour per day service schedule.
