AUSTIN, Texas — Due to severe weather and the threat of flash flooding, The University of Texas at Austin will open at 10 a.m. on Monday, April 18. Normal operations will commence at that time.
All classes are cancelled until 10 a.m. UT shuttle buses will begin running service at 8:45 a.m.
Those classes that are scheduled to already be under way at 10 a.m. will be cancelled or have a delayed start time. Students should follow faculty instructions with regard to those class start times. Faculty members are asked to communicate those instructions directly to the students.
The university asks that supervisors work with employees who have children in school districts that have delayed starts or are closed for the day to meet their needs.
Essential personnel, defined by www.policies.utexas.edu/policies/emergency-leave, are asked to report as requested by your supervisor.
Weather is often unpredictable and conditions can change rapidly. The university will continue to monitor the situation overnight and through the morning. As the situation progresses, updates specific to closure and reopening will be available through local media, the university’s Facebook page and Twitter feed, the emergency web page (www.utexas.edu/emergency), and by calling the university’s emergency information number, 512-232-9999.
