Inclement Weather Policy

If the University closes due to inclement weather, Alderman Library will remain open on an abbreviated schedule, but other libraries will be closed.

  • If classes are in session: Alderman will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • If classes are not in session (“intersession,” such as Winter Break or Spring Break): Alderman will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Note that the libraries of Darden, Health Sciences, and Law set hours independently from the Library system. Check their websites and/or call to confirm their inclement weather schedules.

Inclement weather schedules may differ under certain circumstances such as early closures or delayed openings. Please check the U.Va. Emergency Information site or call the U.Va. Hotline at 434-924-7669 or 243-7669 before making plans.
