How to stay informed if winter weather closes Douglas College

It's that time of year again. You might find falling snow and chilly temperatures in the forecast.

For some, the wintry weather is a welcome sign that ski and snowboard season is getting started.

For others, it's an unpleasant reminder of how annoying it is to shovel the sidewalk.

However you feel about winter weather, it's arrival means it's time to be prepared in the event of a campus closure.

If the weather takes a turn for the worse and a closure seems likely, Douglas will do its part to keep you informed.

To find out what's going on, you can call the College information line toll free at 1 877 679 0823 or check the Douglas College homepage for the latest information.

Updates will also be sent out to the college community through Facebook, Twitter, and email.

Another convenient option is to sign up for DC Alerts. Subscribers get immediate campus closure updates sent via text, email and phone messages.

If the campuses are closed due to weather conditions, the doors will remain open and security will be present because of safety considerations. However, no services will be available and it is not advised to travel to campus.

So make sure you stay informed and stay warm!
