Stay connected with Douglas College this winter


With winter weather and adverse road conditions upon us, please use extra caution when commuting to and from campuses.

As always, if the weather takes a turn for the worse and a campus closure seems likely, Douglas will take steps to inform the college community. Please call the college information line: toll free 1 877 679 0823 or check the Douglas College homepage for the latest information.

What if you wake up to a winter wonderland outside? Please check one of the above information sources before heading into work. Updates will also be sent out to the college community through Facebook, Twitter, and DC Alerts.

Don't want to get out of bed? Sign up for DC Alerts. DC Alerts subscribers get immediate campus closure updates sent via text, email and/or phone messages.

If instructors are unable to make it to class due to severe weather conditions, they will try to contact students in the cancelled class via myDouglas email or another method to prevent them from having to travel to campus unnecessarily.

When 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.

Stay safe out there.
