Campus Closures And Cancellations
Cape Breton University takes its responsibility to its students very seriously and tries to remain open at all times for classes and University business. However, at times, the campus must close to ensure the well-being of our campus community.
In the event of a closure, the campus community will be notified immediately through CBU Alert, www.cbu.ca, and our official Facebook and Twitter accounts. A notice will also be sent to local radio stations.
To be notified of campus closures, please sign up for CBU Alerts and be sure to read our full Inclement Weather Policy.
While classes are online-only, there are some slight changes to the traditional campus closure guidelines:
- If the campus is closed, and you are participating in an on-campus class, it will be cancelled.
- If the campus is closed, and you are participating in an online class the decision will be made by your professor or instructor. Professors have been asked to communicate their inclement weather policies to students.
- If campus is closed, but you have made an appointment to visit campus in-person, this appointment will also be cancelled. Please get in touch with the person you made the appointment with to reschedule for a more appropriate time.
