Inclement Weather

Every employee is personally responsible for verifying weather conditions and the University's operational status prior to coming to work. Conditions can be ascertained in the following ways:

  • PSU Web page at www.pdx.edu
  • Monitor your PSU voicemail. 
  • Listen to or watch media announcements.
  • Monitor PSU ALERT.

University Closed

When the University closes due to inclement weather, all scheduled performances, meetings or other events are cancelled unless a specific exception is obtained in accordance with University procedure.

Late Opening

When PSU opens late, the opening time will coincide with class and/or exam schedules. In addition, to reduce possible confusion, a precise opening time, such as 10 a.m. or 11 a.m., will be announced.

Early Closure

When inclement weather requires closure or curtailment of operations after the workday has begun, notification will normally be made by 2 p.m.

  • During unanticipated weather conditions that effect both vehicular traffic and mass transportation, it may be advisable to stay on campus until commuter conditions have improved. Keep updated by checking the PSU website and local media.
