Weather-related Closings

In the event of inclement weather or other conditions that may warrant a change in the university’s normal operating schedule, the university will post official information about closing, delayed opening and reopening at the following sources:

  • Bowie State University's homepage –
  • Main university telephone number – 301-860-4000
  • Bowie State University Electronic Emergency System (BEES) – text and email messages. You can sign up online to receive BEES alerts -

Notices will only be posted if there is a change in normal operating hours. There will not be a message if the university is opening on schedule.

In determining whether to open or close, the university exercises great care to assess current and forecasted weather and travel conditions on the primary roads leading to the campus.

Although information about university closing will be distributed to regional news outlets, do not depend on the news media for complete, accurate and up-to-date information.
