Main Campus- Harrisonburg, Va. 

Because the majority of EMU students live on or very near campus, classes are canceled only for extreme weather conditions. In the event of class cancellation because of weather, announcements will be made over local radio and television stations, posted on EMU’s website and via the EMU alert system. Students should use good judgment about whether they can safely drive to campus when there are bad weather conditions in their area and classes are not canceled. Students who miss classes because of weather are expected to contact their instructors as early as possible. Faculty are expected to be flexible about making up absences.  All class assignments should be made up within a week of the missed classes unless otherwise arranged with the instructor.
