During inclement weather, the University of Louisville provides school closing information in several ways, including UofL Alerts (text messages); emails to faculty, staff and students; campus phones; the university’s website; UofL Facebook and Twitter accounts; and on local TV and radio stations. Please do not call the UofL Police Department for school closing information, as inclement weather already causes an increase in emergency calls.
