Schedule for Campus/Facility Reopenings

Last updated: 9/17/17 8:50 am

The Ringling College Emergency Response Team is pleased to share that power has been restored throughout much of the campus! Of course, there is still much that needs to be done to restore campus to normal operations, so over the course of the week, we will be coordinating with contractors to ensure building safety and comfort prior to your return.  Network, including WiFi, and internet services will be brought back up and tested to ensure proper performance. In addition, food service operations will be restocked and staff recalled.

We value and support the student experience, and we are fully committed to that goal. Many of us, including students, staff and faculty, are still recovering from Hurricane Irma. As of Monday, September 18th we will have the staffing to open labs with extended hours. Until then, we are working to have labs open as much as possible, while keeping student safety as our top priority. Below are the following campus openings and lab schedules through the weekend:

We understand how very stressful this situation has been for you all-students, faculty, and staff alike-and we appreciate your patience as we work through the details. 

Students, please know that we understand and have heard your concern about being penalized for missing classes under the grade attendance policy in the event you have trouble getting back to campus. We want to reassure you that you will not be penalized under the attendance policy if you have difficulty getting back to campus on time.  IT IS MOST IMPORTANT THAT YOU TRAVEL SAFELY!

We also recognize that communications may be challenging due to damage from Hurricane Irma. Any faculty or staff having difficulties arriving to campus for their first class assignment or office opening, please alert your department head, supervisor, or Human Resources as soon as you are able.

Thank you all for your patience and flexibility through this emergency. We look forward to seeing you back at Ringling College, and please be safe on your return to campus.
