Lewiston-Auburn College

Emergency Information Line

  • The USM LAC Emergency Information number is 780-4800
    This number is to alert you of the campus closure due to inclement weather or any emergency situation that would arise. It also has information about early releases or delays.
  • Please do not call the main phone number. The information phone line, web page, and text alert system will have the information posted as soon as it is decided.

    Inclement Weather:
      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 afternoon or evening classes at least 2 hours PRIOR to the start of classes.
    Common sense dictates, however, that students should decide for themselves whether or not they are able to travel to and from their campus.
    Announcements naming USM's Lewiston campus or USM's Lewiston-Auburn College specifically will be broadcast on local radio and television stations.

Portland and Gorham campuses make their weather related decisions independent of the Lewiston campus. However, you can find out the statuses of the Portland or Gorham campuses from the same Emergency Information phone number, 780-4800.
