HR Question of the week

In the event of severe weather, how do I find out about cancellations/closings?

In the event of inclement weather, there are three ways of learning about delays, class cancellations and/or campus closings:

  • The first is Kent State's Advisory webpage located at This page lists any closings across Kent State's eight campuses.

  • The second is through television and radio broadcasts. For a complete listing of all of the television and radio stations to which cancellation information is reported, please visit this link.

  • The third method is through the general Flash ALERTS text message and FlashLine e-mail. The Flash ALERTS text message will alert subscribers to check the university's Advisory webpage for up-to-the-minute reports on campus and class status. Individuals can subscribe to the Flash ALERTS service online at

For more detailed information on campus closings due to inclement weather, read the Winter Weather Advisory Update.
