To notify students of emergency or weather alerts the University uses a variety of methods, such as TV, radio, website, e-mail, and the EU Shield safety app, which all students are highly encouraged to download from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
If the University is on a two-hour delay, that means classes before 10 a.m. are cancelled. Only classes beginning at 10 a.m. or later are in session (i.e. you do not have to attend a 9:30 – 10:45 a.m. class at 10 a.m.). So an 8 a.m. class does not begin at 10 a.m. and a 9 a.m. class does not begin at 11 a.m. The rare exception to this is for classes that span multiple class periods (i.e., a class that is from 9 – 11 a.m.). If a class is scheduled through more than one “normal” class period, you should attend that class beginning at 10 a.m. Delays are for all Edinboro campuses unless otherwise specified.
When the best laid plans go awry and you find that you are “stuck” on main campus, the Residence Life and Housing Office offers emergency housing to students at a nominal rate. Commuter students are encouraged to keep a sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, any essential medication and a change of clothes in their vehicle—just in case. If you find that you must stay on campus, please contact the Residence Life and Housing Office at (814) 732-2818 during regular business hours, or the University Police at (814) 732-2921 after regular business hours.
Visit the Federal Emergency Management website for tips on preparing your car for winter weather. Edinboro sits just 20 miles from Lake Erie and lies in a valley in the heart of the snow belt. The area is prone to sudden and heavy snow falls. Knowing that conditions may change quickly and planning ahead will save you time, money, and inconvenience on difficult winter days.
While the University does not make recommendations for off-campus housing, we strongly suggest students contact Billie Fitzsimmons, Edinboro Borough’s Code Enforcement Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (814) 734-1812.
If you would like to move on campus or would like more information about on-campus housing, you can contact the Residence Life and Housing Office at (814) 732-2818 or email@example.com.
The Edinboro Express is Edinboro University on-campus shuttle system provided by the “e” LIFT. The Edinboro Express operates during fall, spring and winter semesters while classes are in session. Three different shuttles run on campus throughout the day. In addition to on-campus service, the Edinboro Express also services the University's Porreco College in Erie. Students can also use the Edinboro Express to go off campus to Walmart and the Millcreek Mall. All students may ride the Edinboro Express or any of the “e” routes by showing their University-issued ID card.
Yes, the University has reservable and non-reservable lockers located in the Frank G. Pogue Fitness Center.
To park on main campus, you may register up to two vehicles with the University Police. Simply register your vehicle online. Once you’ve completed the form, take your registration, driver license and Edinboro ID picture card to the Police Department to receive your parking decals.
Commuters can park in any parking lot on main campus designated with a blue C. Parking at the Porreco location is open to all and does not require a parking decal. See the map of designated commuter parking lots for more information.
The University has several places on main campus to eat. For a map of locations, a list of hours, menus, and commuter meal plans, visit the Boro Dining website.
Edinboro University has several study lounges throughout class buildings, the student center and the library—including a commuter lounge in Van Houten Dining Hall and a 24/7 study lounge at the entrance to the Baron-Forness Library.
