Campus Construction

Generally, there are many construction projects around campus. The most up to date information is available on the Transportation Services website.

We encourage you to check out the "Street Closures and Detours Map" link on that page.

  • Those who cancel less than three weeks before the start of the first course of each session will receive a 50% refund.

OPTIONS Inclement or Severe Weather Policy

UW-Madison is generally open for business year-round and rarely closes as a result of snow or other inclement weather. In the event of a snow closing or large-scale class cancellations, information will be conveyed to the campus community via the UW-Madison home page and local media.

In these instances, anyone planning to attend events on campus is encouraged to check to ensure programs are being held.

Precollege OPTIONS will post on their homepage and the program page in the event of inclement weather that affects a program.
