Inclement Weather Plan

UNC Asheville recognizes that the weather has no respect for our visitors or our tour schedule. Because of this, we must have an appropriate plan in place in case of inclement weather.

Campus tours are advertised to occur rain or shine, hot or cold and our tour guides know that they are expected to be prepared to give tours in these conditions. However, there are instances when it is unsafe for our tour groups to go out. In the following conditions, the Campus Visit Coordinator may cancel or delay a tour:

  • Snow
  • Ice
  • Lightning
  • Thunderstorm
  • Tornado (watch or warning)
  • Hail

In the event that the University cancels classes due to inclement weather, campus tours will be canceled as well.  We will post a message on the main Admissions web page, in addition to the main tour page.  Please be sure to check the Asheville weather forecast, and dress accordingly.
