Severe Weather

During Normal Working Hours

Normal operations will continue unless notification to the contrary is provided to your supervisor.

After working hours/temporary closure or suspended operation of the University

Facilities Services staff should call 547-INFO or listen to local radio stations to determine if the University is open for operations. If the University is open, all Facilities Services employees should make a reasonable attempt to come to work.

Essential services staff are expected to report to work during any temporary closure of the University of Washington. Questions about these circumstances should be discussed with your supervisor. Since inclement weather conditions may change regular commuting routes, staff are expected to have alternate travel plans that will enable them to get to work during temporary closure weather conditions. (Ref. Facilities procedure on Temporary Closure/Suspended Operations).
