As we prepare for freezing temperatures across the state, teams are mobilizing to ensure the campus is ready.

We are tracking the forecast and working closely with local and state officials, including the National Weather Service, to evaluate potential risks and hazards. As of this morning, meteorologists do not expect icy road conditions for Bryan-College Station or the surrounding area. If the forecast is accurate, we anticipate welcoming our faculty, staff and students back for the first day of class as planned on Tuesday, Jan. 16. However, if the forecast changes, we will notify the campus community through our official communications channels: university email, social media, our website and Code Maroon.

The Facilities and Energy Services team is actively working behind the scenes to safeguard buildings and other infrastructure across campus. The team is closely monitoring energy generation and distribution to ensure compliance with required conservation measures as this area has the potential to affect various regions across Texas.

If you happen to already be on campus and notice something that could be problematic, especially with low temperatures, report it to our facilities’ communications center so the appropriate team can be called in to assist. If it is an emergency, such as a burst pipe or gas leak, call the campus communications center at 979-845-4311.

Please travel safe as you return to Aggieland and remember to protect yourself, pets and plants from the extreme cold in the coming days.

We look forward to seeing all of you on the first day of class.

Greg Hartman
Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President, Texas A&M University
