Lynn University Hurricane Plan
Lynn University’s event and emergency management plan, maintained by the Department of Campus Safety, defines procedures for inclement weather, including tropical storms and hurricanes. Here’s what you need to know:
Hurricane season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30. Every June, Campus Safety issues a test message notifying the university of the season’s arrival and encouraging all members to update their emergency contact information. This information can be updated at any time via my.lynn.edu.
We encourage students and employees to monitor local weather for the most updated and accurate information.
In the event of severe or dangerous weather, the university will inform employees and students about precautions to take or procedures to follow via various emergency notification methods. These may include posting messages to lynn.edu/alert, distributing email, text or voicemail messages, or providing in-person instruction and guidance.
Lynn University meets the National Weather Service’s “StormReady” requirements. Learn more.
Lynn is not located within an evacuation zone. Our storm preparations and facilities can accommodate our on-campus student community and Lynn “first responder” staff in the event of a tropical storm or hurricane. The university is not an evacuation shelter for all Lynn employees, non-residential students or their families. Nonresident students and Lynn employees who are not “first responders” should make their own evacuation and/or storm preparedness plans.
