During an emergency, Ohio Dominican will post the most current information on this page.
Ohio Dominican is open and operating under normal conditions.
Call the Student Information Hotline 24/7 at (614) 251-4590 for campus information.
Ohio Dominican University will always seek to remain open if
possible, but the safety of our students, faculty, and staff will be our
primary concern in the decision to close or remain open.
Snow & Extreme
If the Franklin County
Sheriff’s Office declares a Level 3 snow emergency (emergency vehicle traffic
only), Ohio Dominican will close and classes will be cancelled.
In cases of extreme
weather in which a Level 3 snow emergency is not declared, we may still decide to cancel classes or close the
University and dismiss personnel based upon a careful assessment of current
weather conditions, temperature and forecasts.
Please keep in mind
that the cancelling of University classes during daytime hours does not
necessarily include Adult & Continuing Education or other evening classes.
Look for separate announcements regarding the status of evening classes. If the
University is closed, all events also will be cancelled.
It is unlikely for ODU
to close because of cold weather alone. Unlike K-12 schools in the area, our
students and staff are adults, and are capable of preparing themselves for
inclement weather and altering their schedules if needed.
Since our students pay directly for their education,
we are obliged to provide that education as promised as long as weather
conditions do not pose a safety threat to students and staff. In other words, our
job is to keep the University open.
Notice of Closing or Delay
The announcement of ODU’s closing or delay will be communicated in
the following ways:
