Hurricane Michael Update

An update on where we stand after Hurricane Michael hit the region last week, and a long weekend of very hard work by our facilities and residence life staff, and many others on campus.

The university will reopen as scheduled on Tuesday and classes will resume as scheduled on Wednesday. Power is restored to all buildings on campus, and cleanup and repair efforts are continuing.

  • The ground floor of Bedford Hall was impacted more than any other place on campus, and will be closed while crews repair water damage. The rest of Bedford Hall will be open Wednesday as normal. Students who have classed on the ground floor of Bedford will be told by their professors where their class will be relocated.
  • Lancer Park also sustained water damage and an aggressive operation is under way there that will include continuing assessment of both damage and air quality. Repair work is already underway, and Residence Life is working to relocate students from a handful of rooms until the work is completed.
  • A number of trees on campus sustained serious damage. Grounds crews and outside experts worked to save those they could, but sadly several had to be taken down after they were determined to have internal rot or otherwise fatal structural damage and posed a danger of falling on pedestrians.
  • Public locker rooms in Willett Hall continue to be open from 10-4 today and tomorrow for families who still don’t have power.
  • If you note any other damage as you return to your residence halls or work, please submit a work order at or through the link at

Thank you to everyone who has worked long hours to get campus up and running after the storm. Your hard work and dedication are much appreciated!
