Inclement winter weather

During periods of inclement winter weather, UGA follows a set procedure for announcing operational changes.

By policy, the university makes one of three announcements: UGA is open and operating on a regular schedule; UGA is closed; or UGA will delay opening until a specific time.

An all-campus e-mail is the primary means to distribute such announcements. The announcement also is posted to the UGA home page ( Up-to-date information is provided to Athens radio stations as follows: on the AM dial: 960 and 1340; and on the FM dial: 88.9, 90.5, 91.7, 97.9, 100.1, 102.1, 103.7 and 106.1.

Information is posted on University Cable Channel 15, which also is carried on channel 15 of the cable system serving Clarke and Oconee counties. Athens radio stations are used primarily because they give priority to UGA announcements where Atlanta stations cannot.
