Update 09/13/2018 @ 11:20 AM

Dear Campus Community,

As you know, we are continuing to closely monitor Hurricane Florence. This remains a large and dangerous storm that will have significant impacts across North Carolina and the Atlantic coast.  For Greensboro, we have seen some improvement in terms of anticipated conditions. However, predictions have been changing daily, and we must remain well-prepared and vigilant should the expected impact to the Triad change.

Please continue to monitor the National Weather Service for the latest information. We will continue with our current plans as stated here.

We know many in our community have family, friends and loved ones in the path of this storm.  UNCG is here to support you. Students needing any specific help or information can contact the Dean of Students office. UNCG will continue to provide updates throughout this event.

Thank you.

Dear Campus Community,

UNC Greensboro, in consultation with regional, state and national agencies and experts, continues to closely monitor the progress and path of Hurricane Florence. We recognize that the path of the storm has shifted and predictions around impacts for the Triad are changing. We must remain vigilant as this situation evolves and continue, as always, to ensure the safety of our UNCG community.

The latest information shows a potentially reduced impact for our immediate area. That said, this remains a very dangerous storm and we urge people to continue to take it seriously. Please continue to monitor information from the National Weather Service in Raleigh for the latest.

Many school systems, public institutions and other facilities have also made decisions to close or reduce operations. As a result, many students, faculty and staff have made various plans based on the available information. This storm remains unpredictable, especially until it makes landfall. We will continue with our current plans as stated here.

It is our hope that the impact on UNCG and our region is less than anticipated.  We will continue to make decisions to best protect our community, students andemployees. We will continue to provide updates throughout this event.

Thank you.

Dear Campus Community,

Due to the anticipated and potential effects of Hurricane Florence in the Triad, UNC Greensboro will cancel all classes and all other university activities beginning at noon on Wednesday, September 12.  At this time, all home athletic events are also cancelled beginning Wednesday at noon.  Updates on athletic events will be available at the UNCG Athletics website.  For employees, UNCG will enter Condition 1 of the UNC System adverse weather policy at noon on Wednesday, and at 5 p.m. we will enter Condition 2.

Normal operations are anticipated to resume at 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 16. Regular class schedules are planned to begin again Monday morning, September 17. We will continue to monitor the situation and update the campus community with any changes.

All university residence halls, critical on-campus facilities and university dining facilities plan to remain open for the duration of this storm unless specific safety concerns arise. Students that live off-campus should prepare ahead of the storm by ensuring they have at least a 3-day supply of nonperishable food, water and other essentials.  Residential students can expect to receive additional updates from Housing and Residence Life throughout the storm.  We recommend the following resources to help everyone prepare and stay informed:

The safety and preparedness of our community is our top priority.  While information is still developing about the specifics of this storm, everyone in our community should take it seriously.  Regardless of the track, the potential for several days of heavy rainfall, flooding and gusty winds across portions of North Carolina will exist. These impacts may lead to downed trees, prolonged power outages, blocked roadways, closed bridges, and disruptions to water/sewer supply.

We encourage all of our students, faculty and staff to review weather and road conditions to make well-informed, safe choices about travel. If you live east of Greensboro, please consult all relevant local resources and consider remaining here where we will have critical services and infrastructure available.  Any students choosing to travel home outside of the area are highly encouraged to do so before strong winds are expected to begin in the Triad by Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

We will provide updates as needed throughout the event via email,spartanalert.uncg.edu and the university’s Facebook and Twitter pages.  Please also monitor information from National Weather Service in Raleigh.  The UNCG Office of Emergency Management will be monitoring the weather throughout the storm and may issue emergency alerts if conditions become dangerous on campus.

Take care, be safe and stay connected for more information.
