University operations

We are pleased to share that all power has been restored to south campus, so our students in Botts, Oak, and Williams Hall have full utilities once again; however, the residence halls in north campus are still without power.

Because JEA cannot guarantee that we will return to full utilities by the end of the day today on the remainder of campus, we have decided to cancel classes through Friday. We will resume classes on Monday, September 18.

We remain confident that full utilities will be restored well before Monday, and, as soon as power has been restored to north campus, we will return students to their assigned residences.

If you already have already booked a flight to return to campus before Saturday, please call the Residential Life staff at (904) 305-1220 to make accommodations. Otherwise, please wait for the all clear. We will update the website and share on Facebook when full utilities have been restored and you can return to your assigned residence.


Meals will be served out of Oak Hall through the end of the day today. Beginning tomorrow (Wednesday), full menu meals will be served out of Riverview Dining Hall using weekend hours (opening at 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.). Weekend hours will continue through Sunday.

Waves (Oak Hall) will open tomorrow normal hours, and Starbucks will open Thursday under its standard hours. If power is restored to the Commons, Chick-Fil-A will open on Saturday.

Faculty and staff

We will email you later today with information specific to you.
