Emergency information link in footer of page. IUP has launched a standing emergency information page at www.iup.edu/emergency.

The page presents a daily status message indicating whether the university is open and operating normally.

If weather or other events result in class cancellations or delays or other changes, this status message will be updated to provide the latest information.

The page also includes links to information on the IUP Emergency Notification System, Inclement Weather Policy and Procedures, and Emergency Plan, and current weather.

A link to the new emergency information page appears at the bottom of every page on the main IUP website.
