Tropical Depression Florence Update

Dear UNCG Community,

As we have seen, the impacts of Hurricane Florence have been substantial and widespread.  There will be lasting effects throughout our region. Across the state, numerous roads and highways are closed or unsafe for travel, and there are significant recovery and emergency management efforts underway.

As announced on Saturday, in consultation with local, state and federal officials, UNCG (like many other state universities) has canceled classes for Monday, September 17 to allow more time for the many students who left the Triad in advance of the storm to more safely return.

Additionally, the University will operate at Condition 1 for employees on Monday. Offices will reopen, and non-mandatory employees should use their discretion in determining their ability to safely report to work.

We expect to return to normal operations and a full academic and activity schedule on Tuesday, September 18.  Most regular campus services will be available as normal for students effective Monday morning.

Students who believe the storm will affect their ability to attend classes when the University resumes operation are urged to contact their professors to make appropriate arrangements. Please also 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.

We know many of our students have family, friends and loved ones who may be impacted by this storm. If you are in need of urgent mental health resources, please contact the Counseling Center’s after-hours support by calling 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.

Above all else, we ask everyone to consider their safety and monitor all local and regional weather forecasts and road condition reports when planning travel.  We will continue to monitor the situation.  You can expect another communication on Monday to confirm plans or address any new changes as conditions evolve.

Thank you.
