WVU Tech will close Wednesday, Dec. 5 following a Presidential Proclamation and separate Executive Order issued by Gov. Jim Justice for a state holiday and day of mourning in honor of former President George H. W. Bush.

While classes are canceled, essential campus services including the Library, Dining Services, Housing, University Police and Facilities will remain open.

The closure will be effective for all non-essential personnel beginning at midnight through 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday. Employees who are considered essential personnel will be contacted by their supervisor with additional information regarding the work schedule tomorrow. All dining services employees already scheduled to work Wednesday, Dec. 5 should report to work. Units with existing emergency closure protocols should follow those. Employees with questions or concerns should contact their supervisor.

Wednesday’s classes, including labs, exams and review sessions, will be moved to Friday, Dec. 7 as a make-up day. At the discretion of instructors, classes may be canceled Friday and students are encouraged to check with instructors for updates.

WVU Extension Services offices will also be closed across the state due to the holiday and day of mourning.

The University will reopen on a normal schedule Thursday, Dec. 6 at 6:00 a.m.
