Due to the current forecast of Hurricane Irma, the University of Florida’s main campus in Gainesville will be closed on Tuesday, Sept. 12.
We previously announced the university would be closed on Sunday, Sept. 10, and Monday, Sept. 11. No classes at the University of Florida will be held on any of those days through Tuesday.
Only essential university personnel should report for work, although additional personnel may be asked to come in on Tuesday to assess damage and prepare for opening. All employees should check with their supervisor on Tuesday.
UF is currently scheduled to reopen and resume classes and normal operations on Wednesday, Sept. 13. We will continue to evaluate campus and community conditions, providing any scheduling updates as needed. For example, the university will consider reopening the J. Wayne Reitz Union when it is safe to do so.
The official site for university hurricane information is the UF home page.
We ask UF Health clinical and core service personnel to check with their supervisors as to whether they should report to work and provide support to the academic health center for emergency operations.
UF/IFAS personnel outside Gainesville should adhere to their county government guidelines on closing. Personnel in other UF programs outside of Gainesville should consult their supervisors.
Supervisors, please ensure that all employees, including OPS, are informed of this closure.
Notices of any scheduling changes can be found on the UF home page or on the information line at 866-UF-FACTS or 866-833-2287.
