Keep up with campus alerts during inclement weather

Snow day at Dallas Hall, SMUEven when it’s unseasonably warm, Texas weather can change in an instant. When conditions warrant closing or delays, SMU has procedures in place to ensure that students, faculty and staff know where to go for information.

As soon as a decision is made, the following steps are taken to notify the University community:

  • An e-mail message will be sent to all students, faculty and staff.
  • A recorded message will be available at 214-SMU-INFO (214-768-4636). Please do not call the SMU Police Department.
  • Closing announcements will be posted on the SMU website, via SMU’s Twitter feed at twitter.com/smu and at facebook.com/smudallas.

The Office of News and Communications will attempt to contact the news media by 6 a.m. if day classes must be cancelled. If it becomes necessary to cancel evening classes or events, News and Communications will attempt to contact the news media by 4 p.m.

Separate decisions regarding closings or cancellations will be made for the Plano and Taos campuses. Those campuses are not automatically affected when the main campus is closed, or they may be closed when the main campus is not, depending on local conditions.

SMU cannot guarantee that local media will announce closing information promptly or fully. Therefore, confirm information from non-SMU sources against official University communications. Individual schools, colleges and departments are not authorized to make their own decisions on closings, delayed openings or cancellation of classes.

The University maintains a webpage devoted to weather policy at smu.edu/weather. Check it frequently for the most current information, including inclement weather plans for Dining Services and SMU libraries.
