Closures due to bad weather

The college sometimes closes due to bad weather or other on-campus emergencies. The safety of staff, students and the public will be the key factor in any decision to cancel College operations. For information about when and how closures are announced, visit the Inclement Weather and Closures page.

If a closure is scheduled or active, a closure alert bar will be present at the top of every niagaracollege.ca webpage.


On-Campus Emergencies

In the case of an On-Campus Emergency, emergency messaging may be broadcast via the Urgent Notification System (NCALERT), the College website, social media channels and on-campus digital signage. Notification may differ based on the emergency.
