Inclement Weather

Inclement weather includes any kind of extreme weather, usually snow or ice, which creates hazardous driving conditions or significantly impair normal operations at the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith. This also includes severe thunderstorm activity, tornadoes, flooding or other natural perils.

UAFS does continue some operations during periods of inclement weather in order to meet the needs of our students and to ensure the safety and security of our campus. Campus sidewalks leading from housing to the Lion's Den, and to the 24-hour lab within Boreham Library, are given priority for clearing during inclement winter weather. See the latest Campus De-Icing Plan.

Please read the Inclement Weather Policy for additional information on how such events can impact campus.
