Cancellation & closing policies and notices

University closings are announced on the university home page: and campus news.

Snow and/or ice may cause
university closing.

If the university closes for all or any portion of a day [for weather or any other reason], Career Services must also close at the same times. Any events & services sponsored by our office that were scheduled to occur when the university closes are also cancelled.


If university is closed: While our staff would very much like to accomodate On-Campus Interviewing employers who have already travelled to Blacksburg prior to a weather-related closing, for safety reasons for students, for our staff, and for our guests, we are not able to be open during university weather-related closings.

If university has late opening: On-Campus Interviewing will open when the university opens.

Employers or students with scheduled interviews: contact employer relations staff in advance if you have questions or anticipate travel problems due to weather.

Any announcements related to the Fall or Spring Connection job fairs will be noted on the Connection website.

Career Services publicizes and endorses many events that we do not directly sponsor and over which we have no control, including many career and job fairs. For possible cancellations or rescheduling, you should place reliance upon the specific event website (not our event list) and upon the contact person for the specific event.

Career fairs list has links to each event website, and sponsor/contact info.
