Wayne State University closed due to dangerously cold wind chill temperatures and Oakland University also canceled classes and events. Grand Valley State University closed all of its campuses. And Northern Michigan University in the Upper Peninsula shut down.

Hundreds of elementary, middle and high schools closed across the state.
