The University of Louisville is shutting its doors through Friday, Feb. 12 due to inclement weather.

A RAVE alert sent Thursday afternoon informed students, faculty and staff that campus would remain closed going into the weekend. In-person classes on Friday will also be held online.

This comes after a winter storm brought ice and snow overnight and into Thursday morning.

“Though widespread wintry precipitation has ended, scattered power outages and hazardous travel conditions will linger in many areas into tonight,” the National Weather Service released. “In short, some recovery time is necessary after significant ice and sleet accumulates.”

Some locations on campus will remain open for students who live on campus though.

The Ville Grill, POD Market at University Tower Apartments, Wendy’s and Papa John’s will remain open, but have reduced hours. Ekstrom Library will be closed during this time.

U of L Director of Communications John Karman said the university is expected to be open again on Monday, Feb. 15.
