Campus Closed

Due to extreme weather, Lakeland Community College is closed Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2021. All on-campus classes, activities and events are cancelled, and all on-campus and remote college operations are suspended. Virtual class meetings in online WSR (with synchronous requirements) sections are cancelled, and students in fully online sections are directed to contact their instructor if they have questions about the impact of the closing on any deadlines.

We believe this to be an equitable decision that takes into consideration the possibility that many of our students and faculty may need to access campus-based resources regardless of whether their class is in-person, hybrid, fully online, or web synchronous (WSR). Further, many students and employees are parents who may be faced with childcare challenges if their K-12 schools close.

Holden University Center partnership students are directed to check with their faculty for official communication related to remote delivery or cancellation.

Employees and students at Lakeland Community College have been automatically enrolled in our Emergency Alerts system (text, email). Information on closings will also be available on:

Reminder – Students please keep your cell number up to date with Lakeland's Student Student Service Center, employees with Human Resources and HUC students with the Navigation Desk. Only cell phone numbers on file with Lakeland listed as a cell will receive text alerts. Even If your cell phone is your home/primary number, please make sure it is also listed as your cell number.
