Process Regarding Weather Delays/Campus Closures for Northern Vermont University

The decision to delay or close in the event of inclement weather or other emergencies will be made by 6 a.m. This decision will then be conveyed to the Vermont Association of Broadcasters, the primary source of weather cancellation information for all radio and television stations statewide. Please note that this decision may differ on each campus depending on weather or emergency conditions at each location.

Students, faculty, and staff on both campuses will receive a Rave Alert text regarding delays/closures. Sign up to receive campus alerts
