A message from FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY (updated 09/09/17)

Hurricane Irma


Based on the most recent forecast from the National Hurricane Center, Florida State University is extending its current closure through Friday, Sept. 15 for all campuses, due to concerns about the impact of the storm and possible long-term power outages in the Tallahassee area as a result of fallen trees.

Travel to the east and the south is STRONGLY DISCOURAGED. 

DO NOT travel into the path of the hurricane.

Students are encouraged to discuss possible travel to alternative locations to the north and west of Tallahassee with family and friends. Please continue to monitor the latest weather information from the National Weather Service or other official weather sources.  

Florida State University continues to monitor the progress of Hurricane Irma. Students who chose to not evacuate will be advised to follow a "protect in place" protocol. That is, stay indoors, away from windows during the storm. We will be prepared to support students after the storm. All university departments are engaged and prepared to respond to student needs. On-campus residence halls will remain open for current residential students. 

Employees should communicate with their supervisors regarding their expected participation in post-storm assignments and clean-up efforts.

Stay tuned to and the SeminoleSAFE app for further updates as they develop.
