Inclement Weather Resources


Winter weather is fast approaching! Utilize the resources below to prepare.

Staying Updated

Stay updated on university closings, late openings, or other weather-related changes in the university's schedule through Mason's switchboard at 703-993-1000, Mason Alert, the university's homepage, as well as local media outlets.

Telework and Inclement Weather

Having telework agreements and technology in place in advance can come in handy if Mason experiences an extended weather event or other emergency. Teleworkers (if it is their scheduled telework day) and remote workers continue to work even if:

• Classes are canceled and administrative offices are closed

• The university is on a modified schedule

Employees working from home during a university closing are expected to continue working unless it is not possible due to power outages or other conditions that prevent them from working. For more details, visit

Inclement Weather/Emergency Guidance

With winter fast approaching, now is a great time to review the Inclement Weather/Emergency Closing Policy
