Winter weather conditions across the state are prompting WSU campuses to suspend normal operations.

The WSU Pullman campus suspended normal operations at 2 p.m. today due to inclement weather.

Campus operations in Pullman ceased this afternoon to allow students and all non-essential personnel to leave campus before the winter storm makes travel conditions worse.

WSU Spokane also suspended campus operations at 2 p.m. Students should reach out to instructors to clarify plans for classes this afternoon.

WSU Tri-Cities also announced the suspension of campus operations as of 3 p.m. today.

Classes at WSU Tri-Cities scheduled to start after 3 p.m. may be moved to remote instruction at the discretion of the instructor. Students are asked to check with instructors about the status of their afternoon classes.

WSU Tri-Cities employees should check with their supervisors regarding remote work options.

Meanwhile, at WSU Vancouver today, campus operations were suspended for a second day in a row due to unsafe travel conditions brought on by icy, wintry weather.

Operations had been scheduled to resume at noon today at WSU Vancouver following Tuesday’s campus closure, but icy roads prompted the outright suspension of operations for the day.

WSU Vancouver employees should check with their supervisors about their ability to work remotely. Essential personnel on the Vancouver campus should report to work as scheduled if they are able to travel safely.

WSU Vancouver faculty are encouraged to offer remote instruction, while students should check with their instructors regarding the status of Wednesday classes.

More information on today’s suspended campus operations are available on the WSU Vancouver campus alerts website.

Normal campus operations in Pullman are expected to resume Thursday, Jan. 18.

Employees across the WSU system should monitor their campus’ Alerts websites, as wintry weather is expected throughout the region:
