Campus closings/emergency information: In inclement weather, check the website at http://gwinnett.uga.edu and tune in to local television for information about campus closures or late starts. Weather-related closures are determined based on the conditions at the Gwinnett Campus. Gwinnett is NOT closed just because Athens Campus may be closed. Gwinnett Campus is closed for official UGA holidays and occasionally when no classes or events are scheduled.

Security awareness on the Gwinnett Campus: While the Gwinnett Campus is a safe place, it’s also a public place where the usual concerns about property crimes apply. When you’re on campus, keep an eye on your personal belongings and consider a few simple recommendations:

  • Do not prop locked building doors open for others to use. Even if it’s just for a minute, it’s a security risk.
  • Keep your personal belongings near you or locked in your trunk at all times, and leave your valuables at home.

Please note that children under the age of 16 cannot be left unaccompanied anywhere on the UGA Gwinnett Campus. Our campus is located in a public, open-access building with no one available to watch over young children. You may decide to allow students to bring their children to your classes. Children need to stay in the classroom with their parent or guardian at all times.
