Dear UNCG Community,

The impacts of Hurricane Florence will be felt around our region for a very long time. On our campus, we are able to return to normal operations, but we recognize this is not true across the state. Recovery will take time. We know many in our community have been directly affected by this storm.

As announced on Saturday, in consultation with local, state and federal officials, it remains our intention to be fully operational beginning Tuesday morning, September 18.  All classes will resume, and most other activities and events will take place as scheduled. All offices, services and other functions will be operating as normal.  Although the campus is generally safe to navigate, the heavy rains have made for slippery conditions in certain places. Please be careful as we continue to manage a few ongoing issues related to the storm.

We recognize that not everyone in our community will be able to return to normalcy at this time.  Those experiencing personal and family challenges have our support and understanding.

Students who believe the storm will affect their ability to attend classes when the University resumes operation are urged to contact their professors and carefully monitor Canvas and other communications channels for class-specific updates. Faculty will work with students who are facing challenges returning to their normal schedules. Students who have been impacted by this event and need support are encouraged to contact the Dean of Students Office at 336.334.5514 or the Counseling Center at 336.334.5874.

Employees with any concerns or questions about Employee Assistance Programs, benefits or leave should contact Human Resources via the website or email ( for further information. Those interested in updates from across the UNC System should visit

Please continue to monitor all local and regional weather forecasts and road condition reports when planning travel. We look forward to seeing our students, faculty and staff back on campus and in class, even as our thoughts remain with those most directly impacted by Hurricane Florence.

Thank you.
