Emergency Information Line
The USM LAC Emergency Information number is 753-6595
(Emergency Information Line for the Portland and Gorham campuses is 780-4800)
Please do not call the main phone number. The information line, web page, and alert system will have the information posted as soon as it is decided
The decision to cancel classes in the event of inclement weather will be made by 6:00 a.m. for day classes. In the event of deteriorating conditions, a decision will be made during the day for cancellation of evening classes at least 2 hours PRIOR to the start of classes.
Announcements naming USM's Lewiston campus or USM's Lewiston-Auburn College specifically will be broadcast on local radio and television stations.
Cancellation notices will be posted on the USM LAC web page. You may also subscribe to USM's Emergency Alert System to recieve notices by email or text messages on your cell phone. If you wish to sign up for such announcements, please refer to the infolist information page. Please do not call the main phone number. The emergency information line, web page, and alert system will provide the information as soon as it is decided.
Common sense dictates, however, that students should decide for themselves whether or not they are able to travel to and from their campus.
*Portland and Gorham make their weather related decisions independent of the Lewiston campus.
