Campus Weather Closure

Is the College open or closed?

Pikes Peak Community College stays open during normal operating hours unless roads are closed, or in case of an unforeseen emergency.

One exception is that our Creekside Education Center follows School District 49 and may close or have a late start when all other PPCC campuses are open.

During inclement weather, the decision to close or remain open is usually made by 6:30 a.m.

When the college is closed, there are no activities and there is no access, other than for essential personnel.

Here are the different ways you can find out the status of PPCC weather closures:
