Dear UNCG Community,

We continue to monitor the evolving winter weather forecast for our region. The latest information is as follows: Guilford County and much of North Carolina are currently under a Winter Storm Warning. According to the National Weather Service, snowfall accumulation in the Greensboro area is now expected to be at least 5 inches and possibly significantly more, and they forecast potentially high winds. Significant snow and ice accumulation across the state of North Carolina is also likely. As with any weather event, information is always evolving and subject to change.

Based on these conditions, all Sunday events on the UNCG campus are cancelled. Additionally, the University will operate under Condition 2 of the adverse weather policy effective midnight tonight and until further notice. This includes:

  • University offices are closed.
  • Mandatory Staff report per regular schedule.
  • Non-mandatory Staff do not report to campus.
  • Details on time management and leave policy are available here.
Employees should be prepared for adverse impacts including loss of power and remain in touch with their supervisors as needed.

Also, note that the UNCG Women’s Basketball game in Chapel Hill has been postponed.  Please check the UNCG athletics website for updates on the impacts to sporting events.

We know some students and staff will remain on campus during this weather event. UNCG is well prepared to provide food and other essential services for the duration of these adverse conditions.

We ask that any individuals with cars on campus move those cars from street parking to the McIver or Oakland parking decks. Parking in these decks will be complimentary for the duration of this event. Snow removal and other work to ensure effective access to our campus will begin as soon as conditions permit. It is important that roads are as clear as possible so we can work safely and efficiently.

As previously noted, winter session classes have begun. Because these courses are all online, they should not be impacted by weather conditions unless there is a significant power outage that mandates cancellation.

Additionally, please note that per standard procedure, the Moss Street Partnership School will adhere to Rockingham County Schools operational decisions.

We will continue to provide updates on conditions and operations every afternoon by approximately 5 p.m. for the duration of this event. We will make all operational decisions as quickly and efficiently as possible, always with the safety of the campus community in mind.

More information to help you prepare for the winter weather is available here. Ensure you pay attention to all relevant local weather and road condition information when planning travel. And please make sure you continue to monitor your email and Spartan Alerts for the latest information from UNCG.

Thank you.

Dear UNCG Community,

With our December commencement slated for Friday, we know many of you are keeping a close eye on the weather. Rest assured, commencement will happen as scheduled, and we look forward to celebrating around 2,000 new UNCG alumni tomorrow.

Beyond that, the National Weather Service is predicting a potentially significant winter weather event for our region beginning this weekend. In partnership with state and local officials, we are monitoring this evolving situation carefully.

Current expectations are that winter weather could reach us by Sunday. To help you plan, the University will provide an update on conditions and operations every afternoon by approximately 5 p.m. for the duration of this event. We will make all operational decisions as quickly and efficiently as possible, always with the safety of the campus community in mind. We do advise that you plan ahead so you are well prepared for whatever conditions arise. Some helpful information is available here. Please make sure you continue to monitor your email and Spartan Alerts for the latest information from UNCG.

Hurricane Florence Update – Classes Cancelled Monday

Update 09/15/2018 @ 7:35 PM

Dear UNCG Community,

As we look ahead to the coming week, the immediate and long-term impacts of Hurricane Florence remain significant. Weather is still a substantial challenge across our state.

In the interest of creating the safest possible conditions for our students and based on the guidance of local and state agencies, UNCG has elected to cancel classes for Monday. This should allow for safer travel conditions to develop in much of the state. We will also move to Condition 1 for employees on Monday. Non-mandatory employees should use their discretion in determining their ability to safely report to work. We anticipate resuming full operations and academic activities on Tuesday.

Students are urged to exercise good judgement and monitor local weather forecasts and road conditions when determining travel plans. Those who believe the storm will affect their ability to attend classes when the University resumes operation are urged to contact their professors and seek help if needed from the Dean of Students office. Make decisions that keep you safe.

We recognize many in our Spartan community – students, faculty and staff – have family, friends and loved ones who have been directly impacted by this storm. We also understand that many of our students may be dealing with stress as they manage their way through individual difficulties. We are here to help you. Students needing additional guidance and support should please contact the Counseling Center’s after-hours support by calling 336.334.5874. The Dean of Students office will also be operational next week. Employees with any concerns or questions about benefits or leave should contact Human Resources via the website or email (benefits@uncg.edu) for further information.

We are working with partners across the state to continuously assess the situation, and we will communicate further as needed.

Thank you and be safe!
