UWS campuses are rarely completely closed. However, some unforseen operational issues, planned industrial disputes or extreme local environment, weather conditions may cause us to close a campus.
The Met Office has issued 'yellow' weather warnings for snow and ice across central and southern Scotland. There may be disruptions to travel in some areas.
If a campus is closed when you have an assignment due for submission, follow these guidelines.
This page will post updates on any disruption to exams due to bad weather or other events. Again, your safety is the most important thing to consider when deciding whether to travel to an exam in severe weather.
If you decide it’s not safe for you to attend an exam, you should submit an Extenuating Circumstances Statement. Visit our Academic Appeals and Extenuating Circumstances page for further details.
