COLUMBIA, Mo. – In anticipation of impending winter weather, University of Missouri officials have announced a full closure of the MU campus and UM System offices beginning at 1 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11. Only employees who are situationally critical will need to report for work after that time.

“Due to a winter weather advisory for our area and out of concern for the safety of our campus community, we have decided to close the campus at 1 p.m. Friday,” said Gary Ward, MU vice chancellor for operations. “We have been working closely with local and state officials and, given the current information, believe this is the best course of action at this time.”

All MU Health Care hospitals will remain open. The Veterinary Health Center will remain open for emergencies. For more information on MU Health Care, please visit The MU Student Center, Student Recreation Complex and select dining facilities will remain open with limited services.
