UNC Asheville is operating under normal conditions
Seek information from official UNC Asheville sources whenever possible.
- Notice of late starts or cancellations will be posted as soon as possible at unca.edu and on the "snow line," 828/259-3050.
- We will also notify all area news media, but there is typically a delay of ten minutes or more in that information appearing on websites and on the air due to the broadcasters' internal procedures. The most accurate and timely source is unca.edu. Typically, you will also receive an email when classes are delayed or cancelled.
- Newcomers to UNC Asheville: Weather and driving conditions can vary widely from one neighborhood to the next within our mountain region, and UNC Asheville makes decisions independent of other schools and universities. Do not assume classes here are delayed or cancelled just because other institutions have done so. If road conditions are bad early in the morning but expected to improve, classes may be held on a Late Start Schedule, which is NOT the same as the 2-hour delay many K-12 schools in the area have. Here is the Late Start Schedule.
- Faculty, staff and students all are asked to use their own best judgment about whether driving conditions in their area make travel prudent. If university operations are normal but it is not safe for you to travel, contact your supervisor or department chair.
For more information about adverse weather policies, visit the Human Resources website and the Department of Public Safety website.
