Sign up for the UWS E2Campus alerts and receive real-time text messages and/or emails in the event campus-related incidents including weather-related notifications, fire drills, unexpected water shut-down or dangerous situations. As a safety precaution, we urge students, faculty, staff and the UWS campus community to sign up to ensure this important information is delivered to you by cell phone text or email. There is no charge for signing up; however your cell phone carrier’s standard text messaging rates still apply.
A confirmation text message will be sent to the enrollee’s cell phone when sign up is completed. The system will ask the enrollee to submit a four-digit code via computer to complete the verification.
Employees and students are urged to listen to their radios or check the UWS website on mornings when weather or other conditions are hazardous. Local radio and television stations begin announcing closures/late openings at 6:30 a.m. Campus closings are also announced through e2campus alerts, social media and on the UWS website.
If a late opening is announced, UWS employees and students are expected to report for work or classes at the announced time. Even though the campus may be open, each person is responsible for deciding if weather conditions at their residence or on the route to UWS make it unsafe to travel to campus. See Policy 3020 – Closing due to Inclement Weather or Emergency.
