What if the weather gets bad?
OSU-OKC officials want to remind staff, faculty and students about our severe weather policy. Any decision to close the campus or to cancel classes because of severe weather or other adverse conditions will be made as early as possible. Local news stations will be contacted immediately when a decision is made to close campus or delay opening. If and when an announcement is made that campus is closed, this includes all classes, and any events, activities or conferences scheduled for the day.
The fastest way to get weather closing information is through social media sites. Check OSU-OKC’s social media sites, Facebook or Twitter, or www.osuokc.edu for the most current updates on campus closings or delayed classes. (If you have a Facebook and Twitter account, “like” us and “follow” us to get the most up-to-date information.)
In some cases, emergency messages such as weather closings will be broadcast through phone text and voice messages. We encourage everyone to provide your emergency contact telephone number through OKey. Because of high volume of traffic through phone carriers, these messages are often delayed. Therefore, we encourage you to check social media sites, websites and local weather channels for the most updated information.
