Is ILR open?

During the third week of February, this was a popular question as snow, ice, and cold held Tidewater in its icy grip. ILR relies on ODU to clear the parking lot and walks and to open the VBHEC so ILR follows ODU's opening policy. On days when ODU opens at 10 AM, the morning class is canceled but the afternoon class will be held.

You can use the link weather closings appearing in the Are We Open? block at the top of the right-hand column on the home page to go to ODU's closing statement on the ODU home page.
