UofM Alert Notification

Campus Reopening

Dear Campus Community:

All UofM Shelby County and Lambuth locations are scheduled to OPEN Tuesday, February 23, 2021.

MLGW’s advisory that residents boil water before use for drinking, cooking, etc., remains in effect. We are taking the necessary precautions to support students living in our resident halls, including providing bottled water. We strongly recommend that anyone on campus take appropriate precautions until the water advisory is lifted. Chartwells, our dining provider, is taking all necessary precautions to ensure that we are using boiled water for cooking and will be serving bottled water for drinking until the order is lifted.

As with other areas around the city, we continue to experience water pressure problems on campus. Accordingly, we recommend that supervisors work with employees to accommodate those who are able to work remotely to do so. Due to lower water pressure, not all facilities, including toilets, will be functioning as we would like. We ask that you be mindful of this and appreciate your patience as MLGW works to remedy the problem.

As always, please take appropriate precautions and stay safe.
