Campus Closed Through Tuesday

From UTC CFO Brent Goldberg

The safety of students, faculty, and staff is our top priority when making inclement weather decisions.

Hazardous winter weather conditions are expected to impact Chattanooga and the surrounding area this week.  Due to the holiday weekend, thousands of students are scheduled to travel back to campus in the coming days.  In consideration of student travel plans, we are announcing inclement weather decisions now for the next two days.

A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for our area with high confidence of significant snow accumulation and travel impacts.  Due to forecasted snow accumulations between 2 inches and 6 inches and due to sustained temperatures well below freezing, UTC will be closed as follows.
