The Capilano University homepage is the official source of closure information. Unless a specific closure message appears on the homepage, the University is open.

As temperatures dip, there are important things to keep in mind. Here's how you can find information about University operations, classes, transportation and getting around campus.

  1. Visit our homepage at capilanou.ca for up-to-date information about campus closures.
  2. We will post morning closure announcements and updates as close to 6:30 a.m. as possible on the day of closure.
  3. Check out Capilano University's Twitter feed for updates.
  4. Download the CapUSafe app on your Apple or Android device. We will send you push notifications through the app in the event of a campus closure.
