Weather-related campus operations

Campus operations suspended Monday, March 4

Following an assessment of the weather and road conditions around the University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe’s Wayne L. Prim Campus, non-essential University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe operations and in-person classes are suspended Monday, March 4.

Instructors may conduct classes remotely, if possible, and provide notice to students as soon as possible. Students are advised to check WebCampus for any updates from instructors, as remote instruction such as asynchronous or synchronous Zoom sessions or alternative non-in-person assignments, may be assigned.

University employees are asked to work remotely and consult with their supervisor to identify tasks that can be accomplished remotely. Tasks can be designed that don’t require an internet connection if an employee does not have internet access. If an employee does not wish to work remotely and remote work is available, they may request annual leave. On a case-by-case basis, if a manager is unable to identify remote work for a classified employee, Administrative Leave should be logged in Workday after being discussed and authorized by the appointing authority (typically a Dean or Vice President). Supervisors should understand that weather-related closures will interfere with productivity and create atypical personal obligations.   

The University will continue to monitor the weather for any changes. Please exercise abundant caution and be safe with the current weather and road conditions!

The University community is encouraged to check and the University’s social media channels for important, ongoing updates or changes to University operations. Also visit for weather watches, warnings and advisories and or the Nevada 511 app for highway conditions, chain controls and current operation status.
