Adverse Weather Conditions

Since the majority of the student body lives in residence halls or in housing in the Arkadelphia area, Henderson State University rarely closes because of severe or inclement weather.

In the event of severe or inclement weather, Henderson State University will notify students, staff, faculty, and the area residents of closings in five ways:

  1. The university’s web page:;
  2. Local and regional radio stations (KVRC AM 1240, KDEL FM HOT 100.9, and KIX FM 106.9 in Arkadelphia and KLAZ FM 106 in Hot Springs);
  3. State television stations in Little Rock (ABC—Channel 7, NBC—Channel 4, CBS—Channel 11);
  4. Recorded messages at the university’s telephone number 870-230-5000.
  5. RAVE alert. To sign up go to MyHenderson, Emergency Preparedness tab and following instructions.
