Power has been restored on the UTPA campus in Edinburg. Campus operations and classes will resume at 10 a.m. today, Feb. 2.

The National Weather Service is calling for extremely cold weather with freezing temperatures through Friday, Feb. 4. There is also a possibility for a mixture of sleet, ice and snow. With that in mind, the University encourages the campus community to monitor the weather situation on local media outlets and the National Weather Service for updates.

If a decision is made to close the campus or any of its facilities, the University will post information on its main website. Subscribers to BroncAlert! will be notified with closings and other important information as well.

As always the goal of UTPA is to ensure the safety of students, faculty and staff. We encourage everyone to stay safe and take precautions while traveling to and from campus and bundle up.

If you have any questions, contact the Office of Environmental Health and Safety at (956)665-7233.

Look for an update at 3 p.m. today on the main UTPA website unless conditions call for an earlier notification.
