Weather Readiness

Current Update

Tuesday, January 2, at 5:00 p.m.

For the safety of our students and staff, we have decided that Jacksonville University will be closed tomorrow (January 3). All classes and activities have been canceled.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Advisory for Duval County, and there is a possibility that some parts of the city, including areas where employees and off-campus students live, will experience freezing rain and even some ice. In anticipation of potentially dangerous conditions on the road Wednesday morning, the mayor has announced that the city of Jacksonville will be closed tomorrow to all but essential personnel.

We don’t anticipate particularly hazardous conditions on campus, but we recommend students and staff stay off the roads tomorrow. Even small amounts of ice can cause hazardous driving conditions.

The University will resume normal operations on Thursday, January 4. In the meantime, Dolphins, stay safe and warm.
