Weather awareness is always advisable for your safety.  VU monitors the forecasts and conditions so if announcements are required, please be aware of VU weather reporting procedures.

When Vincennes University delays or cancels classes and/or office hours due to dangerous weather and road conditions, announcements will be distributed using a variety of methods.  By referring to this guide, you will be assured of receiving this safety information in the most timely and accurate way.  Every effort is made to release schedule adjustments with as much lead time as possible.

Vincennes, Jasper, and Gibson Campuses

VU sends its delay and cancellation notices to both television and radio stations in a wide area - including Terre Haute and Evansville.  You may refer to local stations near our campuses and sites, such as University-affiliated media, since they will have more complete information.

  • Please listen to all announcements carefully.  VU may announce closings for the University as a whole or for specific campuses, centers, or sites.
