415 University Closing


In the event of inclement weather or any emergency that jeopardizes the safety of employees, the President or designee of the University may declare leave with or without pay. In the case of inclement weather, the following details procedures for advising faculty, staff, students, and the metro community when weather conditions require closure or delays in the opening of the University. These procedures will apply to both weekday and weekend activities. The communication protocols for closures or delayed openings of the University during periods of inclement weather are described below:

  • If snow or ice falls during the night, the decision to close or delay opening will be communicated through four (4) media: television, radio, the voice mail of the Office of Public Relations, and the Georgia State University web site at: http://www.gsu.edu/
  • If snow or ice conditions develop during regular daytime working hours and a decision is made to cancel classes and close offices, the University community will be notified via electronic broadcast announcements, and also through television, radio, the voice mail of the Office of Public Relations, and the Georgia State University web site at: http://www.gsu.edu/

We will do our best to inform employees as early as possible about the University’s operating status during periods of inclement weather.

Employees are responsible for regularly checking website notifications for closures or delays in opening the University. Failure to do so, which results in unauthorized overtime pay, may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
