West Virginia University will move to remote instruction on the Morgantown campus online until 11:30 a.m. 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 dining, buses and COVID-19 testing and vaccination clinics, will operate on a normal schedule. Those who are unable to make it to the COVID-19 vaccination clinic or need to adjust their appointment time should contact as soon as possible.

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.

Due to inclement weather, the Health Sciences Which Which location along with Waldo’s Chicken and Hugh Baby’s at Evansdale Crossing will be closed today.

When in-class instruction resumes, if students cannot get to class because of adverse weather or road conditions, they should contact their instructors as soon as possible.

If faculty are unable to get to class, they are also asked to notify their students as soon as possible so that students do not embark on unnecessary travel.

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.

WVU Extension Service will follow its internal inclement weather policy, which can be found at
