MILWAUKEE — Marquette University and UW-Milwaukee have canceled all in-person classes Tuesday due to icy roads and freezing rain.

Initially just Marquette closed for the day, and UWM decided to cancel in-person classes before 9 a.m. But around 8 a.m. UWM officials decided to extend cancellations for the entire day, due to the severe weather.


UW-Milwaukee announced on their website that they have canceled all face-to-face classes, public events and student activities at all three campuses on Tuesday. Online classes will be held as scheduled, according to their website.

For athletics, performances, receptions and other events, you are asked to contact the sponsoring unit of the event for details on the status of the event.

UWM says employees who normally work in person should contact their supervisor.

UW-Milwaukee said in their announcement:

All employees who normally work in person are expected to report to work as usual. They should use their best judgment regarding commuting. Employees who normally work in person but cannot report to work due to unsafe commuting conditions, child care or elder care issues should contact their supervisors to discuss alternative arrangements as described below.
