A Message From the University of
Central Florida in Anticipation of
Tropical Storm Nicole
In anticipation of Tropical Storm Nicole, UCF will suspend campus operations and all classes, including online classes, Wednesday, November 9, and Thursday, November 10. UCF is already scheduled to be closed on Friday, November 11, in recognition of Veteran’s Day.
- All academic assignments, including for all classes with online components, are suspended while the university is closed.
- UCF Housing will remain open and operational through the storm for all residents, and campus dining halls will remain open until 3:00pm Wednesday, November 9.
Though Tropical Storm Nicole’s impact is forecast to be weaker than Hurricane Ian, we are making these decisions in the interest of our community’s safety and well-being. We encourage you and your student to use this time to take storm preparations seriously and to stay indoors and off the road once tropical storm-force conditions arrive late Wednesday afternoon.
Following the storm, we will assess campus and local conditions and provide more specific updates about our reopening timeline. We hope that services that would normally operate on holidays and weekends will reopen Friday, November 11 according to their scheduled holiday and weekend hours.
UCF’s Emergency Management team remains in active communication with our local National Weather Service office in Melbourne and the National Hurricane Center to ensure the university has the latest information. We will continue to share updated information regularly through UCF Alert, the UCF Hurricane Information website, and social media.
