WSU Vancouver, Tri-Cities suspend campus operations Jan. 19

Normal operations on the WSU Vancouver and WSU Tri-Cities campuses have been suspended Friday, Jan. 19, due to continued unsafe travel conditions.

Freezing rain and blustery conditions have brought down power lines and caused significant issues for motorists in southwestern Washington this week. These conditions prompted WSU Vancouver campus officials to suspended normal operations throughout the week.

Faculty on both campuses can opt to teach classes remotely today, while students should check with their instructors on the status of courses. Employees should check with their supervisors on the possibility for remote work.

A WSU Vancouver campus alert advises essential personnel able to travel safely should report to work as scheduled. At WSU Tri-Cities, only employees responsible for snow removal and physical infrastructure should report to campus, per a campus alert.

In-person events scheduled to take place on both campuses today are cancelled, and organizers should notify those anticipated to attend.

Human Resource Services offers a guide on inclement weather resources that is available online.

Winter storms across the Pacific Northwest forced campuses across the WSU system to modify and adjust operations during the week.

Most have resumed normal operations. Each physical campus has its own alerts website with the latest information as well as details on how to sign up for future alerts:
