Campus closed through Tuesday because of ice
January 30, 2023
SIUC will be closed Tuesday due to weather conditions. The Emergency Operations center advised people to “use extreme caution” when moving around campus.
Sleet was falling Monday evening, causing parking lots to ice over like skating rinks, making driving and walking dangerous.
The weather forced an administrative closure, meaning all classes, in-person, hybrid and online are cancelled.
Residence halls and the Department of Public Safety will remain open. Residential dining and the Rec Center will operate between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. All other campus buildings and offices will be closed.
The center said grounds workers will be clearing sidewalks, steps and parking lots as weather conditions permit.
At this time, the university is scheduled to reopen at 6 a.m. Wednesday, but the emergency center will monitor the weather and announce any changes to that plan.
