Campus Guidelines for Inclement Weather
All UW–Madison employees are encouraged to review the campus inclement weather guidelines. Only the chancellor has the authority to cancel classes, suspend services, and close the campus to the public and employees. Individual colleges, schools, and units will not close unless the whole campus is closed. Employees should use discretion regarding whether to safely travel to work and request leave if needed. Employees are required to use available annual leave (i.e., vacation, personal holiday), leave without pay or, when appropriate, accrued compensatory time to cover the absence. Employees may also arrange to make up time to cover absences. The guidelines also address the possible impacts of inclement weather on remote work. Additional details for employees and supervisors are provided.
