 Snow, Ice Storm 



In the event of a severe winter storm, the University President determines whether or not the university will cancel classes. All staff are notified through the appropriate divisional Vice-President, department heads, and through staff reporting lines.

Class cancellation is reported through the news media and a posting on the Slippery Rock University home page at and possibly the e-2 Campus Alert System.

In the event that a severe and sudden storm strands the University’s commuter students from leaving campus, the University shall supply the basic needs for the students such as housing, and meals, any other needs deemed appropriate by the incident. Students may be housed in either Morrow Field House or the University Union, depending on the size and scope of need.
