Oakland University has declared an emergency closure for Wednesday, February 2, in response to forecasts indicating the arrival of severe weather and significant snow accumulation throughout the day. Classes and non-essential university activities scheduled for Wednesday have been canceled, and facilities hosting non-essential university activities, including Oakland Center, Kresge Library and the Recreation Center, will be closed.

In addition, a snow emergency has been declared and will be in effect between 10 p.m. on Wednesday and 6 a.m. on Thursday.

Prior to this period, all vehicles on campus must be moved to designated lots, which include covered levels of the P-29 and P-32 parking structures and the Ann V. Nicholson and Matthews Court student apartment parking lots.

The university strongly encourages all campus community members to move their vehicles before deep snow accumulation makes doing so problematic. Starting at 10 p.m. on Wednesday, any vehicles remaining in non-designated lots will be towed at the owners' expense.

The university appreciates the patience and cooperation of students, faculty and staff as it works to manage this severe weather event.
