Existing operations following COVID-19 protocol remain, including student dining services, which will have abbreviated hours that will be communicated via UWA Housing and through updates.

According to the National Weather Service, “a winter weather advisory means that periods of snow and sleet will cause travel difficulties.” The NWS further suggests that all parties “be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities… and use caution while driving.”

Should weather conditions prompt further changes in operations, announcements will be sent to area media, sent to all faculty, staff and students via UWA Alerts, the University’s emergency alert system, and posted on the University Web page at www.uwa.edu/weather. Students should consult these official outlets for announcements. All parties should closely monitor weather conditions and reports and use caution before traveling in inclement weather.
