PEMBROKE — Classes at The University of Pembroke will resume on Tuesday after campus was closed because of Hurricane Matthew and fall break.
Campus opens today. Classes were cancelled Monday through Wednesday, with fall break beginning Thursday. During that time, 150 emergency responders have been staging the campus.
“You should know our campus will continue to host emergency operations personnel well into next week,” Chancellor Robin Cummings said in a note to students on Friday. “Some facilities may be unavailable as a result of this but we anticipate that impact being minimal. Currently, National Guard and law enforcement officers are staging in our auxiliary gym and a few rooms in Jones Center.”
In order to plan their route back to the campus, Cummings referred students and staff to the Department of Transportation’s list of road closures, available at uncp.edu/askUNCP. Road closure information is also available by dialing 511.
About 800 students were on campus when Hurricane Matthew hit Oct. 8.
