FGCU and the Office of Housing and Residence Life want our residents to be as safe as possible. FGCU continues to monitor Tropical Storm Erika. This afternoon, residents were emailed a letter with current information about the storm as well as information about how to prepare.
According to the letter:
“At this time, the university is preparing for this weather but remains open for all normal operations. A decision will be made during the weekend about the need to close the university… At this time, we do not anticipate the need to evacuate on-campus housing. If the university does evacuate on-campus housing, all students who remain on campus will be required to stay in Alico Arena until the campus is able to resume normal operations. You will not be able to remain in your room once an evacuation of housing occurs.”
To see the full text of the letter, go to the “What’s New” page on our website. Keep an eye on our website and our various social media sites for more information about how Erika will affect our residents.
