Alert Carolina Informational: The University continues to monitor Hurricane Dorian, wind and rain expected Thursday

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

Hurricane Dorian is now moving off the coasts of South and North Carolina. Central North Carolina, including Chapel Hill, will soon begin to feel its effects. Rain and wind are expected now through Friday morning.

The University is currently operating under normal conditions and class schedules. Hurricane systems are dynamic, so we are closely monitoring the storm as it progresses and may change campus conditions if necessary. Any change in conditions will be communicated via Alert Carolina.

Any change in condition will apply only to the main UNC campus in Chapel Hill. The Institute for Marine Sciences in Morehead City remains in Condition 3. The campus in Kannapolis will follow UNC-Charlotte’s protocols.

Chapel Hill Transit and Point-to-Point are available for travel to and around campus. Visit for transit schedules and any changes to regular services.

For the most updated forecast and conditions, visit the National Weather Service Raleigh webpage.

If you or your family are impacted by the storm, we have resources available to you. For students, if you are having issues returning to campus or from the areas that have been hit so far, and need assistance, please contact the UNC Student Disaster Support Hub at, as well as Counseling and Psychological Services, part of Campus Health Services at 919-966-3658.
