Posted: Dec. 10, 2018
Update: 3:30 p.m.

It is anticipated that the Blacksburg campus of Virginia Tech will be open during normal hours on Tuesday, Dec. 11. Should conditions change overnight making it necessary to delay the opening of the university, a decision will be made before 5 a.m. and will be communicated via VT Alerts.

Should a delayed opening occur, information on an adjusted exam schedule will be available at which will be linked from the University Status page.

Again, to remind faculty, exams and other activities should not be held prior to the university being open.

A VT Alert will only be issued if there is a delayed opening. If no alert is issued, it means that campus is open and operating on normal hours.
