UNC Wilmington closed through Sept. 21

WILMINGTON, NC (WBTV/AP) - Officials at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington have announced the school will remain closed until September 21 due to the effects of Hurricane Florence.

Thank you for your patience as a very small but dedicated team of employees continues to assess campus damage. The university will be closed through Friday, September 21. This does not mean we will reopen on Monday, September 24. It simply means we can confirm at this point that we will not reopen this week. As we have said in previous messaging, we will provide a minimum of 72 hours' notice before we reopen.

A memo sent out to school personnel Friday said officials "cannot yet effectively or comprehensively assess the impact on our campus."

The memo said the school will give students and employees as much notice as possible before it reopens, giving weight to travel challenges and other factors.

Officials said they can’t determine how the closure will affect the academic calendar.
