Positioned just a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean, Jacksonville University occasionally experiences the effects of tropical weather. In the event of potential tropical weather, the President will activate University’s Weather Preparedness Team. The team closely monitors weather forecast models and communicates with local and regional authorities about precautions which should be taken.
Any decisions to evacuate campus and/or close the University are made by the President, in consultation with the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Weather Preparedness Team. In the event of a campus evacuation, the University will assist residential students with provisions for temporary and reasonable housing and dining accommodations.
Students, faculty, staff, and concerned parents should monitor this page for updated information, in the event of impending tropical weather. The University will post updates as available, and as deemed necessary. High priority communications concerning an eminent storm will be posted to the University home page, www.ju.edu.
Questions regarding weather preparedness should be directed to the Student Life Office at (904) 256-7067 email@example.com.
