In cases of inclement weather, the University will make the decision to close or delay the opening of school by 6:00 a.m. This decision will be available by calling the University's snow hotline at (503) 943-SNOW (7669), by visiting the UP Alert page, or by viewing the "recent events" area on the University website home page. The information will also be relayed to all major broadcast stations in the Portland area, including these television stations and their web sites:
School closure includes UP's academic and business offices and employees are not expected to report for work, except for the emergency crew. If school opens late, employees are expected to report for work at the announced time. If no delay or cancellation is planned, no announcement will be made.
In the event the University is closed due to an emergency or bad weather, all events will be canceled except NCAA games or events for which there are contractual agreements, including ASUP or department-sponsored events, or events in which a non-UP customer has contracted to use campus facilities. A decision to cancel contractual events will be made on a case-by-case basis after review and analysis. Such decisions will be made as early in the day as possible or by 3:00 p.m. at the latest.
