If the University of Minnesota, Morris should close due to severe weather, the chancellor, or another senior administrator will have a representative of University Relations notify local media, including KMRS/KKOK, KUMM, KCCO/WCCO, KXRA, KSAX, KIKV, and the Information Desk, by 6 a.m. if possible. Anyone (faculty, students or staff) who feels unsafe traveling to campus when campus is open and classes are meeting should not travel. On such occasions, faculty should contact the appropriate division chair, students should contact their instructors, and staff should contact their supervisors.
If you park off campus, the City of Morris Police Department website will provide information about snow removal alerts and ordinances for the city of Morris. It is recommended you not leave a car parked on city streets if you will be gone for extended periods of time. Also, be aware of road conditions when traveling anywhere during severe weather.
