Hurricane season begins on June 1 and continues through November 30.
NSU’s first priority is the safety of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors to our campuses. The university monitors severe weather patterns and storms that may potentially affect our campuses and sites, and we have prepared a multi-channel approach to keep everyone informed before, during, and after severe weather or a hurricane.
- Important: Please take a few moments to update your Personal Emergency Contact Information. To register your information and/or to check and update your existing contact information, please visit: www.nova.edu/emergency/notification/registration-process.html.
- Should severe weather, tropical storms, or hurricanes threaten any of NSU's campuses or sites, we will provide updates about NSU's operating status on the university's website at www.nova.edu/hurricane and on the NSU Emergency Hotline at 954-262-7300, as well as via email and/or via text messages as warranted. In addition, local television, radio, and newspapers will be used to reach those who do not have access to other communications channels.
- Finally, please take time to review the university’s Severe Weather Emergency Procedures brochure. NSU students living on campus should also review the Hurricane and Tropical Storm Procedures section of the Residential Living Guide. Every unit at NSU has an Emergency & Continuity Plan, which you should review individually or as a team annually.
- In addition to being prepared at NSU, we encourage every member of the NSU community to have a plan in place for your household. You can access resources online at: http://www.nova.edu/publicsafety/cemp.html and https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/outreach/.
