The University of Wisconsin is following the lead of other universities in the area by halting classes and other activities for much of the next three days.
UW shared this on social media.
Weather Update: In response to the extreme cold, UW is canceling classes, events and campus activities beginning at 5 p.m. Tuesday through noon Thursday.
During this period, only essential campus services will be operating.

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater took a similar step Monday in announcing cancellations over a nearly-identical time frame.
No major athletic events are scheduled on the campus during that time.
