If the university closes prior to the start of the workday, you are not expected to report for work. Employees in specific departments, including facilities staff, may be designated to report even if a campus is closed. If the university does not close, you are expected to report to work as scheduled. If conditions exist that prevent you from reporting, you may use vacation or personal time for your absence.
