West Virginia University will continue remote instruction for the Morgantown campus the remainder of Thursday (Feb. 18) due to inclement weather and road conditions. 

Classes already offered online and those in hybrid form will also continue as planned. Students on clinical rotations should check in with their program directors for additional guidance.

The remainder of the University, including Libraries, dining and buses will operate on a normal schedule.

However, WVU students and employees should call ahead before venturing out to ensure locations and services are open as conditions may change or services may be limited. For example, the Health Sciences Which Which location along with Waldo’s Chicken and Hugh Baby’s at Evansdale Crossing will be closed today. 

COVID-19 testing will operate on a normal schedule. 

Those who are unable to make it to the COVID-19 vaccination clinics or need to adjust their appointment time should contact as soon as possible. The vaccination team may also reach out to reschedule appointments.

Employees and students should use good judgment when traveling in inclement weather. Supervisors are asked to be flexible and understanding with their direct reports if they are unable to make it to work.

University officials will continue to closely monitor reports from the National Weather Service and will provide additional updates if necessary. 

Updates will be provided through a variety of outlets, including WVU Alert system, MIX email and Unews,, MOUNTAINEER E-News and and social media channels, such as @WestVirginiaU on Twitter or WVUMountaineers on Facebook. Also, follow @WVUparking on Twitter and WVU Transportation and Parking on Facebook for updates.

WVU Tech and Potomac State College will make decisions for their respective campuses.
