The Marquette University campus is closed Thursday, Feb. 16, 2023, due to severe weather conditions in the greater Milwaukee area. All classes are canceled regardless of modality – in-person, synchronous and asynchronous online.

Assignments due during the closure are delayed, and instructors are expected to communicate with students regarding their expectations for missed or delayed assignments and to clarify any changes in class schedule due to the closure.  Instructors should see the policy for Severe Weather – Instructor Responsibilities when Classes are Canceled  for guidance when classes are canceled.

Limited on-campus services, including but not limited to the following areas, will remain open, although hours may be reduced:

  • Alumni Memorial Union
  • Facilities Planning and Management
  • Information Technology Services
  • Marquette University Police Department
  • Raynor Memorial Libraries
  • Rec Plex/Rec Plex Nest

Only those employees required to remain/come to campus during a university closing should be on campus. If an employee is unsure if they are required to be on campus during a university closing, they should contact their supervisor.

Employees with a university issued laptop are expected to work from home/remotely or use a vacation day/floating holiday as a replacement for their regularly scheduled hours. Employees working remotely should continue with any meetings that can be conducted via Microsoft Teams. Employees who do not have a university issued laptop and are not approved by their supervisor to work on campus will receive Emergency University Closing pay as a replacement for regularly scheduled hours.

The payroll department will provide guidance, via email, to supervisors for timesheet entry when there is an emergency closing.
