The decision to close UPEI due to weather is not made lightly. However, in weather situations where the potential risk to UPEI’s students and employees as well as property, are high, the University may close, meaning classes and exams are cancelled and services are reduced. In 2017, a new University Closure Policy was approved by the UPEI Board of Governors and endorsed by the University Senate. The policy and associated University Closure Procedures help guide senior management in making decisions about storm closures and how to communicate them.

Despite a New Year's Day storm, hundreds of UPEI faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends attended the University's annual New Year's Levee. UPEI’s version of the social event—held at the Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering building—proved yet again to be a popular stop for levee-goers, and, with the inclement weather, led to participants staying a bit longer to mingle, given that a number of levees were cancelled.
