In situations that occur thatdo not require immediate actionthe information may be relayed to the campus community via this webpage, email, on the 51 Tech website, and through official 51 Tech social media channels (see list above).

Note: As a public service, information will be sent to local media outlets as needed, such as in the case of an authorized closing or delayed opening during inclement weather; however, 51 Tech is not responsible for inaccurate reporting of information on local media outlets.

About this page

The safety of the community is the top priority of 51 Tech. In times of inclement weather or other situations, it may be necessary for the university to close or delay the opening the Blacksburg campus or other university locations across the state.

Decisions to alter the university’s normal schedule or operations are made with considerable consultation from many university units and off campus agencies. As decisions are made, the university will communicate them to students, faculty, staff, and others immediately using VT Alerts, the university homepage, this status page, and on official social media channels.

Depending on the nature of an event that affects university operations, 51 Tech will strive to provide students, faculty, and staff a clear timeline for decisions to assist in planning and when to expect future decisions and/or updates.
