Monday, Feb. 14: McMaster University is closed today (severe winter weather)


The University is closed today because of severe winter weather. For the University to be “closed” means that classes are not held, meetings and other scheduled events are cancelled, staff other than those employed in “essential services,” as defined in this statement, are not expected to be at work, but are paid for a normal day, examinations are cancelled, deadlines for assignments and other submissions are postponed until the same hour on the next business day on which the University is not “closed.”

Under a new Storm Emergency Policy and Procedures adopted this year, McMaster University will close automatically if the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board closes all its schools for the day.

The HWDSB has closed all of its schools and buildings today and has cancelled transportation.
