At this time, the university expects to proceed with normal operations tomorrow, but the Campus Safety and Security Office asks that you carefully assess your route and road conditions before coming to campus.

The National Weather Service (NWS) no longer predicts extreme winter weather involving ice or snow for the Austin area. The university and incident meteorologist Troy Kimmel (http://weather.utexas.edu/) continue to monitor this situation and will update if that changes. 

Even when the university re-opens, there could still be weather risks or poor conditions in your specific location or on your route to campus. Mobile phone apps, along with local broadcast media, social media reports, and published road closures (https://drivetexas.org) should help you assess any weather risks along your route, but only you can decide whether it’s safe for you to come to campus. Please begin assessing the situation and making your plans this evening.

The university expects supervisors and faculty to be flexible with staff and students who are unable to travel to campus as scheduled or who may have to leave campus earlier than expected because of hazardous weather conditions in or around their homes.

Employees should notify their supervisors and students should notify their professors if inclement weather keeps them from coming to the university as scheduled.
