Ice, snow and freezing temperatures that rolled into Texas during the past week have caused power outages across the state and boil water notices in several cities, prompting campus officials at Texas Woman’s University to modify classes in the aftermath. Here’s what we know about classes and campus activities next week at all three TWU campuses:
TWU’s Denton campus has transitioned to internet instruction through Feb. 26 following damage to campus buildings caused by winter storms this week. Hubbard Hall, the CFO building and the Fine Arts building sustained the most damage, making access to some areas of campus difficult, according to an email students received Friday.
The Financial Aid office located in ACT also sustained damage, so the department will be relocated to Brackenridge Hall beginning Monday.
A boil water notice the city of Denton was under until Saturday morning was also a factor in moving classes online, since campus staff plan to flush lines to ensure access to potable water, according to the announcement.
Student services and campus business operations will resume Monday, however, services located in CFO and Hubbard Hall, such as the Student Union (Hubbard) and Disability Services (CFO), will not be open.
The Blagg-Huey Library will be open and available for internet use, and administrators will assess the ability to offer labs as the week progresses, according to the email.
Texas Woman’s University’s Dallas campus will resume all in-person instruction along with virtual instruction Monday, according to the announcement. The building is operational and there is not a boil water notice in place for the county.
Texas Woman’s University’s Houston campus is under a boil water notice and has to wait until the order is lifted to return to normal campus operations, according to the announcement. TWU will be holding virtual instruction Monday, with plans to move to in-person instruction by Tuesday if the boil water notice is lifted. Student services and business operations will be virtual Monday and resume normal hours Tuesday.
