A UWF closure is a suspension of normal university activities. Many departments, such as the Police and Facilities, continue essential activities but the rest of the university is closed.
A UWF closure decision is made by the UWF president or his/her designee. Issues related to closing are coordinated with local officials via the Escambia County Emergency Operations Center.
