Lawrence, KS – According to the statement, this is mostly due to the wind chill advisory for northeast Kansas from the National Weather Service.
The university will continue to discuss the situation but expects to keep campus open. The campus will remain open, but the KU advised everyone to wear multiple layers and limit their time outside to no more than 15 minutes.
The main concern is people being outside for more than 30 minutes. But officials think the campus community can remain safe, as most of campus is accessible through the bus system.
KU will continue to monitor the weather through the morning, but, as campus is likely to remain open, students and faculty are reminded to remain vigilant.
