Hurricane Irma Update #4

Hurricane Irma 2017

Dear FIU family,

The campus is closed through at least Monday as we deal with the impact and aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Our goal is to get our campuses up and running as soon as possible after the storm but first we must take care of each other and our community.

It will likely take several days to reopen the university and several days after that to resume classes. We will do our best to give everyone ample notice to return.

Faculty and staff should make every effort to check in with your supervisor as soon as possible after the storm. We want to be able to account for every member of our team. Please note that payroll will stay on schedule. Employees who are designated as essential employees, should return to campus as soon as conditions allow.

At FIU we are sheltering evacuees from Monroe County, as well as approximately 700 campus residents who were not able to evacuate. We have a group of committed staff that will be taking care of our students and looking after the campus infrastructure.

Please note that campus parking garages are full and closed as of Friday morning.

Please remember that official information about FIU is being communicated through email, FIU’s official social media accounts (Facebook and Twitter), on the university’s news site and through local media. You may also call 305-348-HELP (4357) for updates.

Thank you for everything you have done to prepare. Please be safe, stay calm and take a leadership role in your family and your neighborhood to keep others safe as well.
