UGA announced at 4:43 p.m. this afternoon that it will open at 10 a.m. tomorrow on Wednesday, September 13. This is a delay of the normal start time. Classes will start at 10:10 a.m., normal campus business operations will start at 10 a.m., and campus transit will start at 9 a.m.  


The university stated they decided to delay opening because Georgia Power is still working on restoring power to traffic signals, and Athens-Clarke County and the university are still cleaning up storm debris. 


Individuals should check and UGA twitter account for further related information. 


UGA advises anyone traveling to campus on Wednesday to adhere to the following suggestions: 

  • Travel to campus is likely to take longer than usual. Plan accordingly.

  • Traffic lights at some intersections are still out. In the event that power is not restored by morning, you should take extra care at intersections. Any intersection without a working traffic signal should be treated as a 4-way stop.

  • If you are traveling from off campus (particularly from outside Athens), you should defer to local emergency management officials on the routes to take and whether travel is safe.
