Q. What happens if the campus closes early for snow?
Purdue Fort Wayne rarely closes campus due to weather. Assume that campus is open, with classes happening on schedule, unless you get a specific announcement saying otherwise. When severe weather is in the forecast, the university’s senior leadership team monitors weather and safety information from a number of official sources.
Whenever possible, adverse-weather closings are announced by 6 a.m. for daytime classes and 3 p.m. for evening classes. The University communicates weather-related announcements in a number of ways:
- University email
- Social media: Facebook and Twitter
- University home page
- University emergency alerts page
- RAVE emergency alerts
- Local and regional media outlets
You may sign up to receive campus alerts through your goPFW account.
Any weather-related campus closures will include the Library. If the Library is closed for in-person services due to severe weather, you may continue to access many of our online resources remotely.
