    UF in Gainesville to remain open

    After careful consideration and based on the most current information from emergency management and weather officials regarding Hurricane Michael, senior administrators at the University of Florida have determined UF in Gainesville will remain open and all classes, events and clinical activities will continue on a normal operating schedule.

    No hurricane or tropical storm watches or warnings have been issued for Alachua County. The current forecast from the National Weather Service in Jacksonville indicates minimal weather impacts in the Alachua County area. UF administration is aware that the state and Alachua County have declared a state of emergency in Alachua County; however, it is important to note that this declaration is primarily for the purpose of making disaster funds and other resources available should it be necessary. It is also important to note that Alachua County public schools plan to remain open as well.

    Unless notified otherwise through UF Alert texts, UF employees should plan to follow their regular work schedules, and students should plan to follow their normal class schedules. Faculty and staff in other UF programs outside of Gainesville should consult their supervisors.

    We understand the potential for weather-related impacts in areas surrounding Alachua County where UF employees live as well as parts of the Florida Panhandle where the families of many of our students reside, and we are ready to provide support and assistance for those members of our university community who are most affected. Students may contact U Matter We Care at [email protected] or by calling 352-294-CARE (2273). Employees may call the Employee Assistance Program at 352-392-5787.

    UF Health facilities in Gainesville and Jacksonville will continue to operate on a normal schedule. Information about closures of other UF Health facilities is available here.
