UCF To Remain Closed Through Wednesday, Sept. 13, Due To Hurricane Irma
By Space Coast Daily // September 11, 2017
ORLANDO, FLORIDA – UCF will remain closed through Wednesday, Sept. 13, due to Hurricane Irma.
With the impacts the state has already seen, UCF wants to give students and faculty and staff members enough time to manage their needs before returning to campus. The university will also need time to conduct thorough damage assessments on campus.
“While Irma’s full impact is not yet clear, those in our community and our campus will no doubt be affected in some way,” said UCF President John C. Hitt.
“I ask that we all be patient and compassionate with one another as we get back to our routines.”
This decision — which affects all classes, including those conducted online – will allow time for students and faculty and staff members to return to Orlando safely. Students with specific questions about academic due dates should reach out to their faculty members. Again, the university encourages understanding and flexibility due to the extreme circumstances.
This closure includes the Rosen College of Hospitality Management, Health Sciences at Lake Nona campus and Center for Emerging Media in downtown Orlando, all of which follow main campus closure protocols. UCF regional locations will follow the decisions made by their respective host state college.
UCF will continue to monitor the hurricane and share more information as information is available. Regular updates about Hurricane Irma will be shared through email, on UCF’s website and through the university’s official social media accounts, primarily Facebook and Twitter.
