Extreme Weather Policy

Yale provides many services 24 hours a day, 7 days each week ranging from providing medical services to caring for those who reside here.  We are responsible for so many important services that the University can not close.

If you feel that your travel to or from campus will be impaired, please consult the Extreme Weather Policy by clicking here.

If you are not involved in essential activities, and your supervisor agrees that you can be absent, you can do so by using vacation or personal time.

Departments are encouraged to grant permission to as many staff as possible to be absent or leave work early in the event of hazardous weather conditions.
