All SFU campuses closed, exams cancelled beginning this Friday afternoon

Dec 9 2016, 11:03 pm

All three campuses for Simon Fraser University are closed as of this afternoon, and any remaining exams for the day have been canceled.

SFU has announced that exams that begin at 3:30 pm or 7 pm today at Burnaby Mountain, downtown Vancouver or Surrey campuses will be rescheduled to a later date.

Road and transit conditions have deteriorated throughout the day with snow accumulating on roads and train tracks.

In particular, bus service to the SFU campus atop Burnaby Mountain has been significantly reduced. The 145 route between Production Way-University Station and SFU has been suspended due to slick ice and snow conditions on Gaglardi Way, and the 135 route is not traveling to SFU as it is terminating at Hastings and Duthie streets.

There have been reports of buses parked on the side of the roads leading to SFU and at least one accident involving a 135 bus.

UBC’s campus in West Point Grey and all BCIT campuses remain open, with exams proceeding as scheduled.

Hope that everyone gets safely off campus! . . . #snowmageddon #mountainlife #sfu
