In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, University leadership continues to fully assess campus facilities, including Miramar and Momentum housing.
With student safety and success in mind, University leaders have announced that classes will be delayed at least until Tuesday, September 5.
A full timeline for campus re-opening is still in development and will include enough time for all students to move into their campus housing before classes start. Before move-in can be scheduled, housing staff will conduct a full, in-depth inspection of all rooms and common areas to ensure it is safe for Islander students. Fire alarm systems, water and electrical systems must also be functioning correctly before students can return. A concrete move-in date cannot be determined until our full inspection is complete. As soon as University leadership have determined the properties are safe, we will inform you of a move-in date.
The safety of students, faculty and staff remains a top priority. The university understands that many areas outside of Corpus Christi were severely affected by the storm, and is asking students to not make plans to return to campus until it is safe to do so. The university will work with all students, faculty and staff who are unable to return safely once campus re-opens.
Students, faculty and staff should continue checking their Islander emails and Blackboard messages for the latest information and a timeline for campus re-opening as it becomes available.
Emergency Information hotlines remain open. The public, students, faculty and staff can call the following numbers to receive updates throughout the campus closure:
