Hurricane Dorian

Last updated Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2019

The University of South Carolina is in contact with state and local officials about the status of Hurricane Dorian. Please note that as a state agency the university determines closure decisions on the status of Richland County Government, and at this time County offices plan to remain open. If that changes, you will be notified as soon as possible.

Employees who are affected by the local K-12 school closings tomorrow and cannot come to work should coordinate with their supervisors, who are instructed to offer flexibility to impacted employees. Likewise, students who cannot attend classes are responsible for coordinating with their instructors.

Note: Essential operations like food service, housing, health services and the Strom Wellness Center also will continue.

The safety of our campus community is a primary concern of the university, so please be sure to monitor media and Carolina Alert for any updates
