BREAKING: CSU cancels all classes, events after 3 p.m. today

Update 2:14 p.m.:  While the University is officially closing at 3 p.m., the Public Safety Team encourages supervisors to send people home as soon as reasonably possible due to reports that visibility is getting poor and roads are icing up.

Following the National Weather Service forecast, Colorado State University has decided to cancel all classes and campus events after 3 p.m. Wednesday, according to the CSU Public Safety Team.


According to an email sent to the CSU community, the NWS warns that severe winds will evolve this evening, and that driving at the regular evening commute time will be extremely difficult.

Students and staff are asked not stay on campus beyond the University’s stated closure time, unless necessary. CSU employees with emergency duties are asked to coordinate with their supervisors or directors to determine their work status. Emergency employees include, but are not limited to, CSU Police, Facilities Management, Housing, Environmental Health Services, the Veterinary Teaching Hospital and Diagnostic Laboratories.

Campus employees are advised to work with their supervisors to determine what time they are released to leave campus. Supervisors may use their discretion in allowing individuals to leave earlier than 3 p.m.

CSU Public Safety and Risk Communications Manager Dell Rae Ciaravola said the Public Safety Team will monitor conditions throughout the night and early morning. At this time, there are no plans to close campus Thursday.
