Although the University of Cincinnati will not open until 10 a.m. on Monday, March 3, due to inclement weather, the College of Medicine (including all administrative offices, the Reading Campus, Hoxworth Blood Center and Health Services Clinic in Holmes) will be open normal hours.
The Colleges of Allied Health Sciences, Nursing and Pharmacy will open at 10 a.m.
More information about the university's snow policy:
All employees in the College of Medicine are considered "essential employees” and are expected to report to work or remain at work as scheduled during emergency closings. Any employee who is required to work but unable to do so as scheduled, for whatever reason, must contact their administrative manager at least one hour in advance of the employee's starting time to report their absence.
Essential hourly employees who do not report to work must use vacation, compensatory time or time off without pay.
Essential employees who live in counties where the sheriff has declared a "Level 3" snow emergency and cannot travel to work will be excused and receive pay at their regular straight time rate.
Anyone with further questions should speak with their departmental or unit manager.
On days when the University delays opening, classes and exams for graduate students and first- and second-year medical students will resume at the hour that the University reopens if this is at or before 3 pm. On days that the University is closed, all classes, clinical activities and exams for first- and second-year medical students and graduate students will be cancelled. Students should consult their student handbook for additional information concerning examinations and activities on such days. Third- and fourth-year medical students are required to fulfill all clinical and didactic activities when the university is closed or there is a delayed opening.
