University Closing Policy

The university will remain open and classes held unless there is clear and substantiated evidence to warrant otherwise. Determination of such conditions will be made through information gathered by the director of public safety.

Be advised that “snow days,” during which MSOE classes are canceled, are very rare. If severe weather or another event leads to the cancellation of classes, the decision to close the university will be made as early as possible on the day in question so that the closing information can be included in the local media closing reports.

Main campus

The university announces cancellations in the following ways:

  1. broadcast on Milwaukee area television stations during their “school closings announcements” including WTMJ-TV4, WITI-TV6, WISN-TV12, WDJT-TV58, and most Milwaukee-area radio stations including campus station WMSE-FM 91.7
  2. a notice posted on the MSOE home page
  3. an email message sent to all students, faculty and staff
  4. a notice posted on MSOE’s official social media accounts: Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn

Outreach locations

The university announces outreach closings in the following ways:

  1. broadcast on area television and radio stations during their school closing announcements
  2. a notice posted on the MSOE home page
  3. an email message sent to all faculty, staff and students
  4. a notice posted on MSOE’s official social media accounts: FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn

If no closing is announced as above, assume that classes are in session and MSOE is conducting business as usual.
