UFV procedures for severe weather

As the winter semester begins, the Fraser Valley is once again experiencing snow, ice, and other winter weather conditions.

These conditions can bring challenges when it comes to transportation and keeping our campuses safe for vehicles and pedestrians.

The arrival of winter means it’s time to be prepared in the event of a campus closure.

UFV will close due to severe weather conditions if:

  • our buildings become unsafe (e.g. extended power outages, water damage, roof stress, etc.)
  • it becomes impossible to maintain safe parking lots, sidewalks, or roads on campus
  • there are road advisories or closures on the main highways between our three major campuses.

UFV remains open under normal winter conditions, which often require extra caution by students and employees traveling to and within campuses.

Want to receive texts about weather closures and other UFV emergencies directly to your phone? Sign up for the new UFV Alert service at: www.ufv.ca/alert.

Updates will also be posted to the ufv.ca home page and UFV social media channels.
