Due to a severe winter storm that is expected to hit Metro Vancouver this afternoon, all BCIT campuses will be closed from 2:30 pm on Wednesday, February 8.
“At 2:30 pm, all students, faculty, and staff are asked to safely make their way off campuses,” BCIT said. “All classes will be cancelled and all buildings will be closed for the duration of the evening. SW1 (Gateway building), SE2 (Great Hall), and the ehPod will remain unlocked and staffed by security personnel for those BCIT community members awaiting pick-up.”
BCIT follows in the footsteps of SFU which has already announced that it would cancel classes on its Burnaby campus.
