What should I do to prepare for the storm? 

The USF Hurricane Guide serves as a valuable resource for the university community. Students, faculty and
staff are encouraged to review their personal hurricane plans and monitor local weather

Why hasn’t USF decided about Friday, Sept. 30?  

USF continues to monitor the latest weather information and impacts from the storm.
 Because the situation could change based on the track of the storm, the university
is waiting for more information before deciding when to reopen.  The safety of students,
faculty and staff is the highest priority as decisions are made about when to reopen
and resume classes. 

When campus reopens/classes resume, what happens if I can’t get back to class or work? 

Students who left the region because of the storm and won’t be able to return in time
for the resumption of classes should notify their instructors as soon as possible.
Employees who left the region because of the storm and won’t be able to return when
the university reopens should notify their supervisors as soon as possible.  Faculty
members and supervisors are asked to be patient and understanding with their students
and staff during these unique circumstances. 

When can students, faculty and staff visit campus? 

We only encourage essential personnel and residential students to be present on campus
until buildings reopen. 

The president has the authority to determine if the university needs to close for
emergency circumstances, like a hurricane. There may be times when the president will authorize
that some, but not all, USF campuses will close, so please pay careful attention to
which locations may remain open.  

Only employees who have been identified as essential personnel should report to work
