Inclement weather reminder

Posted on February 12, 2019

Vancouver Community College (VCC) has a plan in place to ensure a timely and coordinated response to inclement weather. Please note that VCC will remain open during normally scheduled hours unless weather conditions pose a hazard to public safety.

Campus closures

VCC considers many factors when deciding to close the college. These include public transportation availability, road conditions, and forecasts.

VCC’s director of safety and security determines if the college will close. 

In the event of a campus or college-wide closure, VCC will inform the community prior to 6:30 a.m. for morning/daylong closures, 11:30 a.m. for afternoon closures, and 3:30 p.m. for evening closures.

Where to check

VCC's homepage www.vcc.ca is the official source for college closure announcements. Look for an information banner across the top of the page.

Unexpected campus closures and other emergency messages will also be shared through:
