Student Housing

Updated 6:25 a.m. 1/17/18: Due to the potential for winter precipitation tomorrow morning, we are monitoring conditions to ensure your safety. Current models indicate no significant accumulation in the Augusta area. However, as conditions could change, we will continue to monitor the forecast.

We want to remind you that university and hospital operations will continue as usual. So, please plan ahead in the event that your shift or commute could take longer.

While we are not expecting this to become a significant weather event, we urge you to exercise caution if you plan to be outside. Dress in layers for extra warmth, and check road conditions before you travel.

Should conditions worsen, we will communicate on Jagwire and the university and health system social media channels.

Thank you and travel safe.
