Inclement Weather


There may be days when Wesley Theological Seminary will need to close due to inclement weather or other situations. On those occasions, a recording will be put on the seminary’s main phone line as soon as possible after any decision regarding closings or delayed openings is made. Every effort will be made to make closing information available by 6:30 am. When weather conditions change, the decision to keep the seminary open may be modified. Therefore, you are advised to re-check just before traveling to the Seminary.

The WTS Main Phone line is:  202-885-8600. Press 0 once the voice recording comes on (you do not need to listen to the entire message) to connect to the WTS opening/closing status line.
