OSU main campus to delay Wednesday opening until 10 a.m.

CORVALLIS – Oregon State University’s main campus will delay its normal opening time until 10 a.m. for Wednesday morning (Jan. 18), in light of potentially hazardous road conditions tomorrow. 

With weather forecasts now calling for additional snow on top of rain and snow melt from earlier in the week, university administrators continue to be concerned about hazardous road conditions for those driving, bicycling and commuting to work. While faculty, staff and students are not expected to be at work or in class prior to 10 a.m., essential university personnel must still report for work. 

Unlike Tuesday, evening classes are scheduled to go forward as planned. 

OSU-Cascades in Bend will be closed on Wednesday due to snow and ice. Additional information on OSU-Cascades is available at
