Severe weather: How to stay informed

In the event of severe weather conditions, the university may announce delays or cancellations of normal campus activities. With the onset of winter, here is a reminder of the university's inclement weather policies and procedures, and multiple ways to stay informed about possible closings and delays.

These delays and cancellations apply to the university only. Emory Healthcare employees are sent a separate communication regarding inclement weather policies, and should refer to the EHC intranet,, for information on operations and procedures.

Members of the university community can and should obtain updated information in one of the following ways:

  • Call Emory's Weather Information Line at 404-727-1234.
  • Text message notification from CEPAR (Office of Critical Event Preparedness and Response).
  • Check the Emory University website. Updated information will be posted to the university's homepage.
  • Watch for an all-Emory email advisory.
  • Social Media: Check the official Emory University Facebook page or @emoryuniversity Twitter feed.
  • Click the "Emergency" icon on the Emory Mobile app for quick access to key phone numbers for one-touch dialing, including Oxford College's inclement weather hotline, 770-784-8400.
  • Consult local radio and TV news broadcasts.
